Anthony Minghella's Cold Mountain shot in the spectacular Carpathian mountains in Romania was received extremely well in the land of its birth.

Released on a not so strong six copies by Glob Com, the film made over 12,000 admissions in its opening weekend. Scary Movie 3 released by InterComFilm on seven copies performed slightly worse but still managed over 10,000 admissions.

Tom Cruise's Last Samurai is still holding strong at the Romanian box office but last weekend's strongest performance came from British rom-com Love Actually which bettered its previous week performance by an impressive 32%.
