Two bleak stories about absent love. In the first, a widow is working hard in a desperate attempt to save her dying daughter. The second tells the story of two wandering singers who kidnap a bride from her wedding.
nothing new. a young Florin Piersic is perfect actor to seduce Romania of 1965. and the art of unique Gopo to give force, humor and sparkles to an old story , the genius of Ion Creangă and the dark character - Spânul - nuanced in Cristea Avram interpretation is good point to sustain fantasy and taste of childhood. nothing surprised. the movie, out of charm, it is slice of a period. an exercise of freedom in a dictatorship. and expression of small shadow of freedom. to tell profound truth must have a good instrument. the fairy tale is perfect. as mask, as word of jester, as naive gesture to describe a world.a parody of a seductive page of Romanian literature. and a great director full of joy of game.
