Press reviews

Talking about nowadays, such as many other colleagues worldwide, Schwab is taking the cruelty experience to the limit, deliberately raping the public’s sensibility. He is building this up with despair, drama and poetry, mixing grace with grotesque. This is what is shocking but also gripping in the delirium of the old women, alienated and alone, who are chatting all day long in The Presindents.
Ludmila Patlanjoglu
One of the most powerful performances of the year 2003, which is shocking and staggering in the same time.
Mihaela Michailov – Averea
Sorin Militaru knows how to make the perfect team of actresses to give a significantly image of a black comedy. If we count also the music composed by Ada Milea and Alina Herescu’ s scenery we get a performance of high quality.
