IMDB

Cristi Puiu's debut film Marfa si banii is considered by many the film that started the Romanian New Wave.  A low budget production, with hand held camera work, improvised dialog and live sound.  It is the simple scenario and the natural acting that drives the picture.  Showing us the intricacies and struggles of average people caught in the transition from communist to capitalist society.
