Storyline

When the Ottoman turks become displeased with Prince Vlad the Impaler's rule in Wallachia they start plotting to overthrow and replace him with a puppet ruler, Prince Radu the Handsome. The year is 1462 and Wallachia is a vassal of the Ottoman Porte to which it pays annual tribute in gold, grain and slaves. Prince Vlad the Impaler often refuses to pay the tribute and conducts terrible wars against the Ottomans. However, the Ottomans militarily support the more obedient Wallachian Prince Radu the Handsome to gain the throne. Captain Ion, an officer in Prince Vlad's guard, uncovers a major plot to kill Prince Vlad. He also falls for Ilinca, the daughter of court advisor Flor. Unfortunatelly, Ilinca is engaged to Andrei, a noble sympathetic to the Ottomans and to Prince Radu the Handsome's bid for the throne of Wallachia. Written by nufs68

after years
14 October 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a novel by Alexandru Mitru. an idyllic hero as Charming Prince. history, love story, intrigues, patriotic emotions - all in skin of Romanian Middle Age, under reign of Vlad Impaler. like many other films of this period, it is a window. for teenagers, for passion for legendary figures of past but, in same time, for the public from Communist East. so, a fairy-tall is perfect option for escape out of reality. And Arow of Captain Ion is an inspired option for this kind of adventure. because it is real good work, in reconstruction of atmosphere, tension, fight scenes and Valentin Găitan is adorable as Ion. sure, it is not Gladiator but can be a testimony. or only fragment from a type of sensitivity. because, after almost forty years, its flavor is unique way to a time in which technology / special effects are not more important front of powerful message of homeland love and patriotic duty.
