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
just saw the movie. In a cinema theater. Sunday morning, only four people in the audience, myself included.
I'm blown away.
here, normally, I would have added only another sentence to this post - but the IMDb rules state a post must have a minimum 10 lines.
so I might write that this is not just a movie. It's a tribute to all movie makers, of all times. It's a tribute to all the people passionate enough with an idea to be able to follow it until the very end. A tribute to those few people that do not sell their soul, or their ideals.

the rest is silence.
