The film's musical score was created by Tiberiu Olah and Nicu Covaci, after Richard Oschanitzky failed to compose a musical score by the due date.Some of the music for this film was borrowed from the Romanian historical film Michael the Brave (Mihai Viteazul).About 20 minutes of music of the Romanian band Phoenix was also used but their name was removed from the film's credits after the band defected from Comunist Romania in 1977.

You know, there are many songs, movies, stories, dance....reflecting a period in a human life. And sometimes those events in life are reclaimed in your memory. I'm not sure about that, but probably this movie is one of them.
BTW I live in Yokohama but I'm Romanian and that's something impossible to reject and I DON'T WANNA!
Sry for that ""pathetic"" introduction.
The movie is worth watching and analyze.
The real story, I don't know.
The legend I'm sure, I was reading that since I was a boy.
The actors are great!
The directing also great.
If you have nothing much better to do watch this story and enjoy.
