Quotes

Vlad Tepes: It is not your country, boyars. You belong to this country. And me as well, I belong to this country. One says Ladislau of Hungary, not Hungary of Ladislau, Kazimir of Poland, not Poland of Kazimir. If it weren't this way, the countries would perish with their lords, and with their boyars.

A great leader
13 November 2002 | by (Bucharest) – See all my reviews

This is one of the many good movies about the great romanian kings who change the history. The action depict the life of the romanian king, Vlad Tepes, known as the Impaler. He was the son of Vlad Dracul, named like this because he was member of the Dragon Order, and the grandson of Mircea the Older. Despite of his great ancestors, Vlad manage to get himself notice, even that his rulership wasn't so long. In one thought, Vlad said "Until now I ruled six years and they gone like only one day. I just wish I had two days, so that in the second day to build something useful for my people, something to be remembered. But still, I manage to build in the soul of my people, and that is a greater achievement." The movie also show the true origin of the mith of Dracula, the vampire. This is an example of how people are so easy to believe bad news, and so reluctant when listen to something good. On the overall, it worth seen the movie, not only for the action, but also for the tenacity shown by Draculea in defending his country against the Ottomans.
