Long live good historical movies
1 December 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie. Today is our national day here and I accidentally came across it while going through the local channels. I always have trouble staying away from it, no matter at which point in the movie I happen to come in.

The Western actors/actress were excellent, and it's always lovely to watch our Romanian actors, like Piersic or lovely Ciubotarasu, whom we've grown up watching in films here.

Wish the world knew more about historical movies involving this part of the world - I think they're the best this country has to offer, moviewise.
