sea of silence, 20 August 2013
Author: Armand from Romania

more than Jules Verne novel adaptation, it is a Stere Gulea film. a film who preserves original atmosphere but gives to it new interesting nuances. a film about ideal and fight - against yourself - , about victories as precious drawings and need of success. change of a world, a political event and a young man who search transform the time. and, sure, a castle. only as sign of this search. it is a film of emotions in veil of Verdi music and in the delicate image of Maria Bănică character. it is, in same measure, a film about clash between honey of past and a future without borders or real identity. in fact, a kind of poem. a sea of silence
