Fed up with the injustice of the very few men owning huge stretches of land, the peasants decide to revolt. Through the peasant Petre, important events from this uprising are shown, from it's very beginning and until it is finally suppressed at the expense of more than ten thousand lives. —Julien M.
Special Romanian film!
The best film of Mircea Muresan and Ilarion Ciobanu. Without many lines, Ilarion Ciobanu makes a very credible character. And the other actors are very good: Nicolae Secareanu makes an absolutely impeccable boyar, Constantin Codrescu an excellent politician who became prefect, Stefan Mihailescu-Braila in the role of a father whose daughter is raped, Amza Pellea in the role of troop commander, Adriana Bogdan as the cheating wife Nadina. I've met Mircea Muresan, I owe him my first appearance in a film, in 1974, in ""Portile albastre ale orasului" (The Blue Gates of the City). I've met him again in 2015, when he was old and almost blind.
