the first duty about "Pintea" is to see it from the perspective of its time. for understand its profound beauty. the music, the landscapes, the story. sure, maybe Florin Piersic in the lead role was not the best choice. but he is a decent one. and he tries his the best to create a legendary hero, more mixture of old songs , myths than historical proofs. many details are sacrificed for the artistic motifs. but for its time, and, in a special way, for ours, it is a beautiful film. the political mark not could be ignored. but, after 40 decades, it seems be too small. because it is far to be a documentary. but a good occasion to resurrect the patriotic feelings. and this purpose remains noble yesterday and today.
