It is a great movie
20 June 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The latest movie directed by Sergiu Nicolaescu, "Carol I", is for sure one of the best documentaries made in Romanian cinematography. The film shows events in the last few months of King Carol I's life and the tension between him and his government in the context of the First World War. The plot unfolds in the summer of 1914, when King Carol I was 75 years old and was living in seclusion at Peles Castle, together with Queen Elisabeta. Nicolaescu stars in the lead role, that of Carol I, a part he played before, in another one of his movies, "For the country" (1977). As for whether the film is true to actual events, Nicolaescu underlined it is nonetheless fiction, even if it is well anchored in the events of the time: "Fiction is almost all the time, because we're all actors. I used a lot of documentary too. I used some of the time's documents and footage, the beginning of the First World War and I also used what I shot in 1977. I have used a lot of materials but the film is essentially fiction". I believe this film is a piece of history and you must definitely see it.
