On "Dacii" and "Columna"
1 December 2005 | by miliroSee all my reviews

I wish people were less "detached" and less bored sometimes, to appreciate valuable movies for what they really are - valuable movies. As I am about to finish watching "Columna" on TV here in Bucharest, I'm thinking how lucky we are to have this fascinating history. To us, both "Dacii" and "Columna" are excellent and make very valid points as to how ancient Dacia was conquered by the Romans.

I am sorry that these movies (as many other Romanian historical movies) are not easy to find in the West, as the viewer comments on here seem to indicate. (I'd initially come on here to see where they could be found, to recommend them to a friend in the West). I think they would also prove useful, providing a wealth of information and "insight" for anyone wanting to learn more about this part of the world.
