Storyline

SHORT

Nicu, a young homeless boy, is adopted by Bruce Lee, the notorious "King of the Underworld" and goes to live with him in the tunnels underneath Bucharest.

As Nicu grows up, he starts to realise that perhaps the King of the Underworld is not the perfect father,and has to make a choice between staying in Bruce's gang, or living a 'normal' life above ground.

Filmed over six years, BRUCE LEE & THE OUTLAW is a modern-day Oliver Twist story under the streets of Bucharest.

LONG

Nicu lives with his gang of friends in the streets and parks around Bucharest's North Station. Huffing from bags of silver paint, they beg and solicit to survive, building friendships among the growing street community of kids.

The local celebrity is Bruce Lee, the self-proclaimed King of Bucharest's Underworld. Painted silver (in the same paint they all inhale), he both deals in the drug, and is the drug. His kingdom is in the underground network of tunnels built by Ceausescu as central heating ducts for the city.

Make sure you watch this. Too good to miss.
26 April 2019 | by anoniemanonymousSee all my reviews

I came across this documentary on television and I am very content that I decided to watch it that particular evening it aired on Dutch TV.

I was intrigued from minute one until the very last minute. The director of this movie, Joost shows us a world we hardly know it exists especially because most of it is filmed underground so we literally don't know about its existence.

I love the way how it is filmed and particularly that the director nowwhere in this movie doesn't give the audience room to form his or her own opinion while it could be very easy for the director to judge but he does not.

Make sure you will watch this and you will not be disappointed

At the end of the day I am sure you will realize that the problems you most likely are dealing with could be way worse as you see how much worse it really could be.
