Storyline

In 1911-12, the Romanian movie director Grigore Brezianu and the financial tycoon Leon Popescu made together the 2 hours long movie "Romania's Independence" - an as faithful as possible screen adaptation of the real Independence War that had been fought in 1877. Now, "Restul e tacere" tells us, in a loose and half-fictionalized way, the story of this movie making. Written by Mihnea Columbeanu

Caranfil strikes again...
8 March 2008 | by (Iasi, Romania) – See all my reviews

È pericoloso sporgersi, Asphalt Tango, Filantropica... The ingredient are the same: lots of humor on a tragic background. 'Restul e tacere' has the same Caranfil style, and more... Without a doubt, his best work. It's a story about the making of the first Romanian movie in 1911, the age when Bucharest was still 'little Paris', and the national identity feelings were probably at the highest level of all times. Although as a Romanian i felt really close to this movie, i must say there is no over - nationalist propaganda, just a simple decent story with a little bit of history as background, telling us how talent met with business to do the "War of independence" film. The humor is great, the story is a must know, the acting is extraordinary, especially the two main characters (Leon Negrea played by Ovidiu Niculescu and Grigore Ursache played by Marius Florea Vizante), the music is right on cue, the 'little Paris' atmosphere is greatly recreated and the rest is silence...
