"Baby" in Romanian

From: Hannes Schaser Berlin, Germany
(born in Transilvania, though):

Re: Your review of "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days": "Bebelus" [bebeloosh, the name of the abortionist] is in fact Romanian for baby, and "bebe" is short for "bebelus."

Thanks for that review. As ever so often, I thought it was very insightful and right on the mark -- particularly the remark about not reducing the film to a this-is-what-Romania-was-like kind of wisdom.
