a complex puzzle. the political power and the man. the challenge of a despotic regime and the answer of people for obtain freedom. the hero as central piece of social wake up. the music, the acting, the half of last decade of Ceaușescu regime. and the courage of director to explore reality using the past figures. because it is not a biopic or eulogy. but a collection of bitter fundamental questions. Horea is the leader but he is more than a model or icon. he is the conscience of a nation looking conquer the national rights, the identity and the old state of the things who gives sense to every day reality. and that does Horia special. and that gives to Ovidiu Iuliu Moldovan the chance to transform his character in symbol. the last dialogue between Horea and his son is the last mark of a splendid and fascinating, not comfortable and honest in profound sense try to redefine the power, national history axis, values and expectations. a puzzle who propose not its solution. but the need to discover each of its pieces as mirrors of essential search of the truth. the music,the sick count Yankovich , the eccentric Kendy, the silhouette of the emperor Joseph, the fragments and pages of an old book preserving the flavor or the flowers inside it. not a manifesto, not a biopic. only a search of the thing who defines a people survive.
