a beautiful film. first - for inspired music. than - for the script . not the last - good acting. a war film who becomes puzzle of destinies in the script by Marin Preda and , in few parts is only promise as result of political pressure. but good and almost remarkable for its period. the basic virtue is science to use the simplicity in powerful images. to give realistic image of a dramatic event not only as show but as result of many deep, powerful roots. an impressive film for many Romanians. for that something out of words - its spirit, cast and mixture of nostalgic emotions. for songs and for dramatic scenes. for a kind of innocence of manner to discover the past. a film who could be a great one. but the not the best balance, the need to be piece of a moment from national history event celebration does it only beautiful.
