Trivia

The famous one on one meeting and dialogue between the sultan Baiazid (the Lightning) and king Mircea (the Old) is not documented in any historical sources, so it probably never happened. This scene is directly inspired from a famous epic poem called "The 3rd letter" written by Mihai Eminescu (a famous Romanian poet) in the 19th century. In the movie part of the dialogue is taken directly from this poem, with only minor changes. Though not historically accurate, the scene is highly symbolic and emphasizes some significant concepts that fueled the continued (and often successful) resistance of the small Romanian army in face of the mighty Ottoman (Turkish) empire.

Goofs

In the closing scene King Mircea is standing on a dam made of large rocks (a common type of dam in Romania since ancient times), but it's clearly a modern construction, flat in the middle and covered with concrete. Ancient dams had no flat surface, being made only of irregular rocks. See more »

part of a time
13 October 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

far from accuracy but scene for impressive battle scenes. patriotic speech and nationalist thesis. a piece from Communist regime last year. and the old precise recipes about hero by Sergiu Nicolaescu. this film is part of a time and sensitivity. sure, dialogs are not really credible and facts are not very realistic, the Romanian Medieval history is modeled by director and the instrument is a script who present a mythical shadow. and the political command is not avoided, but, out of a page ad usum delphini, it is a testimony. about society values and freedom of creation in its borders. about art of an interesting film maker. about perception of past in space of East. about frustrations, passeisme and form of propaganda.
