a story of friendship and love. special for the manner of Titus Popovici to propose authenticity of large zones from social problems, for the art of Mihai Iacob to save the spirit of novel. for the inspired actors. for the way to translate in image a drama who escapes from political command using it as support for a profound science of exploration of detail. ;tefan Iordache does one of his first great roles. and does it in brilliant, subtle, profound manner. Irina Petrescu is far to represent a surprise after the Waves of Danube. and Șerban Cantacuzino has the rare gift to transform his character in more than symbol of a world but in window to a form of elegant refuge. a film about social condition, fights and fall. and, sure, about the ideals of an unique age.
