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
Story of a movie. Story of a Romanian society and the image of movie-adventure. A film about small things, warm, nostalgic, like a spring day.A comedy but, in same time, description of a fight. Old fashion atmosphere and subjective view. And large circles of collective memory. A film about present with words of past.Simple, naive and natural, classic and childish, cruel analysis of a victory and scene of soft discover of national modernity's roots. Ioana Bulca in a impressive come-back. Marius Florea Vizante as brilliant pioneer. And the ash of a lost time. A film about the deep images of soul. Piece of self-definition. A sort of game out of gray reality. A movie. About sense of art, fight, success, fame and truth. Small fragment of a huge mirror.
