a symbol. the most representative cultural personality of Bukovina. and a film who preserves the mark of Communist propaganda. but not this mark defines it. because, out of poor romanticism and social critic, it has few splendid scenes . the night in the song of Sofia Vicoveanca, the feast and the young men captured for military service, the performances of Emanuel Petrut and Toma Caragiu, the young Vlad Radescu in the lead role, Balada interpreted in jail cell , Crai Nou first representation are few examples. and, sure, the atmosphere of old Bukowina. result - a decent job. a sketch more than a portrait, a homage than a biographic movie. but seductive, not only for nostalgics. and useful lesson for understand the influence of politic in Romanian cinematography.
