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.
