Beautiful film
23 April 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Mixture of history and propaganda. Page of national chronicle, testimony for Comunist regime of its important, messianic role in the Romanian destiny.

In same measure, a beautiful film about sacrifice and courage,realistic image of Moldavian Middle Age, description of a special reign for Romanian conscience and a interesting acting.

Stefan the Great is principal ruler of Romanian past,Orthodox saint, romantic character and national hero, the Romanian as archetype. His private life, military art, battles and monasteries, glory and legends, portraits and errors, religious spirit and cruelty are parts of national conscience and bricks of Golden Age. The film presents each this elements as aspects of a impressive father of nation, with some pink shadows and deep respect for facts. In fact, "Stefan cel Mare" is reflection of subtle art of a great film director for who the image as touching message was an iron rule.
