nice subject and intentions
23 May 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a film about war. not great but nice. sentimental and, after second view, not really bad. a good director and his work for another page of National Epos. not convincing, sketch of a subject with more potential, a mixture between poem and nationalism, it is a delicate flower. and basic contribution is the performance of lead actress who gives to her character each nuance of myth. delicate and strong, pure and stubborn, innocent and real fighter, model for her comrades and victim of a great and admirable ideal. the legend is almighty in this case. but it is not an error. only result of a politic in which the past was source of legitimacy for present. nothing else. a film for nostalgics. and good occasion to discover Stela Furcovici in a not bad role.
