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.

More than just a movie
13 January 2015 | by (home) – See all my reviews

The movie "Vlad Țepeș" presents us the life and deeds of Vlad the Impaler during his reign, the challenges he faces and the sheer determination he had to overcome them.

The acting, costumes and scenery are all top, as well as the historicity of the actions in the movie, but the real thing that makes the movie special is Vlad and his deeds, it's more than a life lesson, it's a new moral understanding that he left his people as a legacy, that things can be different, that evil can be defeated, and by not only opposing but actually fighting the typical human weaknesses and wickedness, he managed to stay in the collective memory of his people and foes, thus becoming an immortal, and the personification both cruelty and righteousness and that the human spirit can indeed cleanse itself and get closer to perfection and justice by deeds rather than words.

This movie should be an inspiration for all humanity, willpower overcomes evilness and weakness, and sets us free.
