Very realistic film based on the Romanian writer's childhood memories
29 August 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this movie because it represents real facts from Ion Creanga's past. He is also our guider in this movie, making us know better the place, time and other elements of this story. You can learn a lot from this movie, for example life in Romanian villages, including human behavior, education and entertainment in these places, which were very poor at those times. The movie is inspired from the homonym book. The image quality isn't very good, but it's clear enough that you can well watch the movie. I am sure you will laugh because it contains humor based on the naughty things the author had done in his childhood, such as: stealing his uncle and aunt's cherries, stealing the hoopoe that was the morning clock of the village, the revenge of his mother by taking his clothes while he was bathing naked in the brook without her permission, and many other funny memories are presented here. I hope you will enjoy the movie like I did!
