spirit of an age, 14 October 2012
Author: Vincentiu from Romania

after years, only who remains is its spirit. because it is a very interesting adaptation. the joy of Draga Olteanu - Matei , a very important Romanian actress, for idea, the work as celebration of Mass, the difficulties, the compromises and ,after all, disappointing result.not special effects, not the expected help for a wonderful film. but the film is far to be lost cause.because it has extraordinary cast. because the magic is in heart of public for who childhood hours are not only memories.because the good intentions are obvious. because it is not exactly the Lizuca story but the fairy tale of everyone.nostalgics, miracles taste and a magnificent build world with poor materials but , in same measure, with extraordinary passion. so,in this case, after so many years, only who remains it is spirit. But it is so rich, delicate and glamorous...
