Quotes

Vlad Tepes: It is not your country, boyars. You belong to this country. And me as well, I belong to this country. One says Ladislau of Hungary, not Hungary of Ladislau, Kazimir of Poland, not Poland of Kazimir. If it weren't this way, the countries would perish with their lords, and with their boyars.

29 December 2011 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

To speak about Vlad Țepeș is always a risk. Too many masks. The hero, the demon, the myth, the vampire, the character of historiography and the silhouette of Bram Stoker. The leader from chronicles and the model for Russian czars. A story without frontiers and rules. And, for the circle be full, the Communist vision about past, part of an absurd ideology. So, Procust bed. And, in this case, a good result. A story about courage and justice, patriotic values and crumbs of Medieval facts, politically correct and not very far from facts. A sage interpretation of a period with small extravagant sparkles. Ștefan Sileanu at perfect place, in struggle to create an interesting character, Ernest Maftei in same eternal role and director under PCR pressure. Today, an ironic remark is obligatory. But the 80 years was not a comfortable decade in Romania. In this case, like more others, a gentle smile is enough. And search to discover the dust of that period in its movies.
