political explicit, so you love it or you hate it!
27 November 2010 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Unfortunaly the film has a very clear anticommunist message, so the discussion about politics prevails. Most comments I read face the film this way. As about me:I could understand the way the winners face the history, but I think its a shortcoming to be so one-sided. The communists are depicted like idiots, the Soviets like monsters. Of course this is not an historic documentary, it's art, but it makes it difficult for a viewer to accept pure propaganda. Now regarding the artistic virtues: I found it very good, very much alike Kusturicha's films, but a better version of them. The directing is skillful, and the acting quite good. Some scenes are of extravagant beauty. It also gives an idea of the Romanian spirit and soul, but as I wrote above the political message doesn't allow for a non-objective evaluation.
