little more than a play adaptation
20 December 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

for few generation, it is the best adaptation of Caragiale play. not only for story or acting. but for details. the couple Mariana Mihuț - Victor Rebengiuc, the splendid performance of Octavian Cotescu, Agamiță Dandanache created by Forry Eterle, Ștefan Bănică in a exemplary Pristanda clothes are more than characters/actors because Caragiale himself represents, in Romanian culture , more than a play writer.and it is not a surprise because the work of I. L. Caragiale is the best mirror for Romanian manner to survive to history challenges. in same measure, the film role was complex in its period because, it was a source of fresh air, form of resistance in gray years, great acting demonstration, an instrument against ideological pressure.a play. and an admirable show.
