a good movie for that time..., 22 March 2005
Author: soto4maya from Romania

Like many other movies made under the communist regime, the scenario for "Nemuritorii" reflects the ideology of the time. It emphasizes the serenity of the nationalistic ideas in the history of the romanians. Historically speaking, the film has no value whatsoever. To see a plan (romanian dream) in the actions of Mihai Viteazul is a fact of pure communist nationalistic ideology. The director, Sergiu Nicolaescu, is a master when it comes to combining the art of film making with the art of well dissimulated communist propaganda. On the other hand the film has some strong points: a good casting, very well chosen shooting sets and the best soundtrack for a romanian film made before 1989 signed by Phoenix, a legendary romanian band of the '70s. In conclusion, this film is above average compared to other romanian historical productions.
