The inner becoming of a man
16 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

A story,and with it Slavici proved his true genius.It is a love story,which follows the inner transformation of a man who tried to fight his demon, the love for money, and lost.This movie shows what becomes of a man when he looses the fight with himself,and at the same time looses contact with his love.This fight is hidden at the beginning behind the conflict between Ghita and Lica Samadaul,and one would think that is the classic bad vs good fight.It is more a fight between pure evil and a simple, probably too ambitious, man.I think it is a perspective that all of us should take into consideration.The free fall without any hope of turning back,gives you thrills.

Watch the movie!
