„Milk, no sugar” is one of those Romanian shorts that stands out through the high standard it reaches not only cast-wise – Victor Rebengiuc and Andi Vasluianu need no presentations – but also from the point of view of the elegant cinematography and the music that inspired the timeless atmosphere of the movie.
