honest work
a film about Romanian Revolution of the year 1848. different by the Communist regime's recipes for the genre. because it presents aspects of a profound crisis, characters out of black/white dimensions, the search of solutions in profound manner. it is a sketch but one real significant for understand a fundamental moment of Romanian modern history . that fact does it a good film. not only the performances, not only the script but the courage to propose a precise image of revolution. the use of the play "Bălcescu" by Camil Petrescu has a not small role in the film message. the purpose is not propaganda but the truth. the portraits of characters are realistic, the desire to discover the roots of each revolutionist 's position is the best ingredient for the honest work of the scriptwriter and director. the atmosphere, the wise measure, the message - pieces of a real good historical film.
