The best performance!
28 August 2003 | by (Bucharest Romania) – See all my reviews

Bachus, ("The secret of Bachus" in original) is one of the best comedy in romanian movie history and also one of the best performance of the late actor Stefan MIHAILESCU - Braila. A lot of spectators, saw in the character of mr. Mihailescu - Braila BACHUS one of the deth convict of the Ceausescu, a man who made unlegal (for comunist state) business of billion of lei (million of dollars). But the quality of the script, the actors, (the best actors of the romainan comedy scene) and the director ) also a titan of romanian comedy) transform all into a movie which wring tears of laugh. If a movie could be carry on shoulders, half of this movie is carry by Stefan MIHAILESCU - Braila.
