Moldovan , again
15 January 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

same recipes. but new spices. because fight scenes are completed with emotions. a human Moldovan, victim of political projects and in same fight for justice. out of death circle, invincible, perfect protector of law, he is not only a character but a super hero. and interesting work of a director who desires to do a Romanian policier in correct form. so, it is more than copy of American films. it is more than eulogy for regime - crumbs of Communist silhouettes are only kind of umbrella. it is result of passion and precision. sure, historical accuracy is first victim of project. but, like every historical movies by Sergiu Nicolaescu, Revanșa is not a documentary. only fiction, impressive show, mixture between thriller and action, mirror to a world of mythical inter-war period.
