brilliant!
16 March 2008 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

An absolute masterpiece of Romanian cinematography and a solid quality picture. Its romantic and humorous atmosphere, its gorgeous reconstruction of Romanian belle epoque is fantastic (since that time, beginning of XX century, Bucharest was named 'Little Paris', due to many resemblances to the original city), the acting is impeccable and scenario is well-paced, humorous and inventive.

The story is the making off of the making off of the Independence War that Romania, along with Russia took part against Otoman Empire in period 1877 - 1878.

A must see picture, remarkable for the new spirit in Romanian cinematography.
