memorable
9 February 2015 | by ArmandSee all my reviews

it could have different definition - masterpiece, cultural tool of resistance against Comunist regime, source of splendid scenes, a protest, a cry. in fact it is only a good film. useful support for reflection about the politic influence in ordinary life, about delicate feelings and the pressure of the rules. a film about people as individuality and as inform group. a film about the truth before the propaganda slices. honest. cruel. memorable. maybe one of the best movies by Pintilie. or a real revelation about Romanian cinema for the West. a film like root of a manner to say the truth in precise and delicate manner. that is all. maybe, a phenomenon. or a very useful mirror for each totalitarian regime.
