Between political command and history
The measure is the first virtue of this movie. In the time of Comunist mythology, Burebista is piece of good sense. The secret - extraordinary cast. And the science of George Constantin to explore every nuance of his character. The second - the director skill to say a story without making big compromises. Because the danger was not only fake vision about history of Ceaușescu regime but, in same measure, basic fact of little informations about Dacia earliest evolution. Result - many data of European facts, recreation of Dacian life style, images of a civilization and sketches of Roman Empire.A movie about power of a people and the fight for protect freedom. About Romanian roots and way to define itself. Artistic message of basic values. Not very bad for its time.
