Storyline

The plot take place in 1883 in a small provincial town in Romania, where the corrupt establishment decide everything, including - of course - who will be the "elected" representative to the national Senate. A love letter from the bachelor mayor to the wife of the local party chief, gets lost and found by a drunk party supporter. The letter finds its way to the opposition party, which decide to use the letter by blackmailing the powerful local "camarilla", and to get his own man to represent the county. What follows is not easy to guess.... Written by Alex Darie <alexd@ashtrom.co.il>

admirable
19 December 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

memorable play. seductive movie.a film who explores each part of Caragiale play in a manner who give not only special sense of story but impose a new image about a period. sure, it is a political tool for a regime who desires impose its values. but the use of tool is different in the hands of admirable actors and, more important, as instrument for a great director as Sică Alexandrescu. it is Caragiale in pure essence and this remains the basic value of this delicate and subtle, convincing and seductive movie. Alexandru Giugaru creates a really memorable role with a mixture of innocence and humor.and Radu Beligan is perfect choice for Dandanache. an artistic hill, used in Romanian literature lessons and example of high science to rebirth Caragiale universe.
