a charming story. mark of Rene Claire. and result of cooperation between Romanian and French cinema. the XVII century. siege of a fortress. a smart guy. a love story. and a lot of amusing gangs, errors, scenes, all in sweet sauce of happy end. a nice work. for the acting, for the brilliant Jean - Pierre Cassel, for delicate dust of subject and film. and, sure, for fight scenes who remembers romantic confrontations and commedia dell arte, Goldoni and the precise small gem of master Clair. it has all French flavor and the virtue is, in great measure, of Roumanian part. demonstration of Comunist regime form of freedom for art, it remains a lovely movie, far from policy dusty influence. naive, ironic, nice, it is a trip in past. and demonstration of special sensitivity.
