Great historical movie!
29 December 2009 | by (Iasi, Romania) – See all my reviews

Great story and acting really made me enjoy this movie. I especially liked the performance of George Constantin as Burebista. I did not know much about Dacian history before seeing this movie. I was impressed about the high level of civilization and their diplomatic skills. Even if the Romans were considered a great power, the Dacian were not far behind. Their main concern was to defend the land and live happily.

After seeing this movie I decided to visit the ancient Dacian sites in Orastie Mountains, Romania. One of them, Sarmisegetusa, was the main Dacian fortress.

I think it's a must-see for all Romanians, Bulgarians, Greeks and Macedonians. It's very important to know your roots.
