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. In a way, one might read it as Caranfil's manifesto.
but ignore all the above. Ignore all the comments. Just go see the movie. It speaks for itself better than anybody ever could.
the rest is silence.
