Nicolaecu's movie is one of the greatest Romanian films ever made. The leading role of the king belongs to Amza Pellea, who wonderfully combines the force of the ancestors and the art of giving life to such a character.
The genuine landscapes bring the viewer into a prodigious world of mystery and ancient beliefs which are now violently invaded by the roman conquerors. The co-production benefits not only from the performance of the actors, the settings or the daring achievement in directing of Nicolaescu, but also from the unique, yet true story.
This is what i call a good movie, but this is the comment of a novice in matters of movie critics. For those who enjoy spending precious time on movies, this is worth watching.
