Romanian cult movie
8 December 2005 | by laurentiu_tzentzSee all my reviews

This is the best mythological movie that the Romanian cinematography gave to the world. The historical informations are true in the most part but being so few about the times in witch the action took place, they are spiced in abundance with many mythical ideas about the Dacians and the Romans of that age. The main characters are the prototype of the Romans and Dacian leaders,each one having all the qualities and defaults of their nations and about each you can say that they have the best and the worst from their worlds. In the end they give birth to the Romanian nation, symbolized by a boy whose father is Tiberius and teacher becomes Gerula. Gerula is by far the most powerful character in the movie being the best incarnation of a Dacian in all the Romanian and foreign cinematography. This movie has become a "cult movie" in Romania and it's right to be so.
