one of the first movies about troubled times in Romanian history
12 January 2007 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

'Someplace in the East' is among the first movies made in Romania after the fall of the Communism dealing with one of the troubled period at the beginning of the Comunist rule in Romania. It describes the forced expropriation of land by the Communists and the formation of the Communist farms, which was a real tragic episode in the Romanian history.

Without being a masterpiece, the film succeeds to put well in perspective the fight between the Communist activists and the peasants trying to save their property and keep not only their way of life but also their spirit. The rendition of the atmosphere, the authenticity of the local landscape and good acting from the principal characters are the strong features of the movie. There is less skill in the development of the characters and the story tries to tell too much in too short a time. However the dramatic tension of the conflict gives power to this movie, which is not flawless, but one of the first steps in the recovery of the true history of Romania in the second half of the 20th century by Romanian cinema.
