more than refuge
in Romanian Comunist period, the history was a gun and a refuge. gun for propaganda in search to create perfect image of regime. gun for directors in desire to present a honest image of national past. refuge for public of a gray country. in this case the film is more than gun or refuge. it is a powerful exercise about heroism and dignity, truth and sacrifice, roots and victory. support for meditation and portrait of a martyr. a Maramures legendary figure becomes illustration of national conscience. behind Florin Piersic acting, impressive like a mountain river, is a very good director who gives importance to every detail. behind touching music and recreation of an old civilization is the spirit of past as skeleton for present. the final scene is pure poetry.a film about a slice of curuts revolt against Austria. and more that. a seed. for memory.
