Gheorghe Dinica - respect!
27 January 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

To really understand the movie ... Romanian citizen must be (at least) has lived in Romania during those years ... The rest are just aberrations and opinions of some "speculative" claims by critics of ideas. Do not have anything to do with the reality of those times and even the topic itself. The film is made after a fact, that existed because the team won notoriety and respect in many battles with fire, as called for this ... "party" in his folly, namely political activists have decided to put in pictures of their accomplishments. Interpretation of exceptional Dinica, Piersic, Jean Constantin, Mircea Diaconu, and so on. It brings a distinct note of the film. Dinica If born in America ... certainly was DeNiro's caliber and reputation ... had the misfortune to be born in romania. God rest him in peace!
