a family
1 June 2017 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it remains one of the most impressive Romanian films. not only for the artistic virtues. but for a wise manner to translate the reality on the screen. admirable performances, great story and the art of Stere Gulea to give the right adaptation to a state more than a novel. Victor Rebengiuc did his the second role of his life as importance, after Apostol Bologa , and Gina Patrichi gives , again, the measure of her special gift to transform her in the most impressive characters. more than a film, it is a testimony. about art, about Romania behind the political/social changes, about family and about the status of its members. about a world, so inspired presented by Marin Preda in his novel, so precise defined by Stere Gulea in his film.
