more than a film, it is a testimony. cruel, fresh, profound. a kind a documentary. instrument to stop forgiveness. so, the opinion must be more subtle. because the desire of director is obvious - build a chronicle of Romanian resistance against Communism. the story of Ioan Gavrilă - Ogoraru and his group. and the work was impressive, behind ordinary errors of this ambitious step, behind the Manichean parts, behind the passion who makes things only skin of shadows. it is a courageous project. sad, harsh, honest, far from pink surrogates. it is drawing of truth, sufferance and sacrifice. its seed - Memorialul durerii. its heart - the conscience of past as modeling of present. a gray movie. mixture of fear, ideal, mud and strong values. a lesson - film. about the root of a society. and a vision about fight against pure evil.
