, a record breaker whose run in local cinemas was cut short by the 2020 lockdown (see the news), Miami Bici 2 centres on two friends from provincial Romania who try to make it big in the United States. This Vidra Productions project was poorly received by critics for its combination of bad taste and sexploitation, but cinemagoers flocked to the 183 screens where Miami Bici 2 was available, after the widest release of the year.

Also in the top ten we have Romina, VTM [+lee también:

, another Vidra Productions film, which focuses on a young girl trying to save her father’s seaside bar. With a musical score dominated by the manele genre, Romina, VTM attracted a huge crowd on its first weekend, with the cinemas being forced to greatly increase the number of screenings owing to the unexpected popular demand. Romina, VTM had the best overall debut of 2023, with as many as 233,000 admissions taken in its first weekend, but negative word of mouth led to the film dropping a shocking 87% (a new, negative record) in its second week. Even so, with a total of 360,000 admissions, Romina, VTM is still a top-ten movie in Romania.

After the success of Mirciulică, which was one of the two top-ten domestic releases of 2022 (see the news), popular YouTuber Mircea Popa returned with a sequel, Wedding for Money, about a young man who tries to solve his financial problems through a profitable wedding. This Bravo Films production was watched by 368,000 Romanians over nine weeks. Finally, the fourth domestic release in the top ten is The Action Pack, another Vidra Productions film that ended its stay in cinemas with a total of 322,000 admissions. Incidentally, another popular domestic release was Ramon, also directed by Jesús del Cerro, which occupies the 13th position at the yearly box office, with 198,000 tickets sold.
