| One of the best Romanian movies ever
There is no doubt that the twin movies "Nunta de piaträ", and "Duhul aurului" (and mainly the first one) are among the best made ever in Romania. Both were bought by the Modern Art Museum in New York, and were met with huge acclaim all over the world.

This is not surprising at all, since the scripts are based on the stories and novellas of Ion Agârbiceanu, a great Romanian author who depicted as none else the life conditions in rural Transylvania, at the turn of the last century. The stories are filled by a deep tragic thrill, a fateful feeling that seems to pervade everything. All this is expressed in unforgettable cinematography by Iosif Demian. Literally, each shot is a piece of art. And, while Veroiu, with his contemplative nature, seems to be satisfied only with this frozen conception, Pitza, at his turn, makes it into a dynamic story, with many satirical moments, expressive characters, and an excruciatingly tragic twist in the end.

By all means, "The Stone Wedding" is a movie to be viewed again and again. Every time, it seems to grow up new dimensions.
