This movie have an excelent team of actors and a very good scenario based on realities of the years following WWI, in spite of the fact that it have a controversed subject, because of the nationalities depicted (romanian and hungarian). Anyhow I won't spoil the pleasure of seen this movie, but I tell to people who will watch that is a little bit violent, but that was the reality on that period of time. The genre is war/drama/adventure.
