prefiguration of revolution, 7 June 2012
Author: Armand from Romania

a strange film. because , it has in same measure, artistic and political value. the profoundity and force of Ilie Moromete role is out of commentary. the impressive art of Stere Gulea to recreate atmosphere, beauty, nuances of Marin Preda novel is an obvious fact. Victor Rebengiuc or Gina Patrichi are masters of subtle masterpiece. but, more that, it is an extraordinary manifesto against a sick regime. it is prefiguration of Romanian revolution of December 1989 for the courage to present a free village, economical pressure, the plagues of radical metamorphose, stupidity of politics and image of few men for who reality is prey for honest opinion. a movie far from recipes. few slices from Tarkovsky are just ways to same message - the skin of events is not theirs soul.
