Storyline

William's government blended elements of the English and Norman systems into a new one that laid the foundations of the later medieval English kingdom.[141] How abrupt and far-reaching the changes were is still a matter of debate among historians, with some such as Richard Southern claiming that the Conquest was the single most radical change in European history between the Fall of Rome and the 20th century.

decent work
31 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The memories of childhood, in my case, are the basic tool for define this film. As child, I was impressed by performances and story and atmosphere. Later, I saw this film as expression of the desire of Sergiu Nicolaescu to put his career in European circle. Maybe, with good result. It is a decent historical film. And that is enough in the context of period, as good proof of the measure of Romanian cinema.
