Marius Florea Vizante,
The motion picture projected outdoor for cultural purposes is Mitrea Cocor, based on Mihail Sadoveanu's homonymic novel, one of the most controversial proletkult titles in Romanian literature. The film was released one year before the plot of Nunta muta is developing. See more »

For me this movie was of a great impact. I left the cinema and have not been able to say a word for more than 15 minutes. I was fascinated. It gave me a deep, profound feeling of genuine art, with incredible complex features gathered together in these 90 minutes of displayed images. A lot of meaning - I am sure for non-Romanians has not the same amount of meaning - and an authentic way of touching the most sensitive parts of the Romanian people, with humor on the most critical aspects of the most absurd time, the communist time of Romania. Malaiele is a great artist, but this film is his masterpiece. I highly recommend you to watch this movie. It is not just a movie, it is a lifetime experience.
