Spaghetti western á la roumaine. First part of Dan Pița's "Transylvanians" Eastern trilogy followed by Artista, dolarii si Ardelenii (1978) and Pruncul, petrolul si Ardelenii (1981), it contains all the ingredients of the genre. The story is credible, the acting decent with Mircea Diaconu's and Ilarion Ciobanu's highlights yet directing is average. The props where brought from the GDR and Czechoslovakia and the production costs mounted up to 100.000 dollars. Communist censorship delayed the filming several years. Where this film flaws is the atmosphere that lacks authenticity. I wish they would re-dub this movie.
