When the Ottoman turks become displeased with Prince Vlad the Impaler's rule in Wallachia they start plotting to overthrow and replace him with a puppet ruler, Prince Radu the Handsome. The year is 1462 and Wallachia is a vassal of the Ottoman Porte to which it pays annual tribute in gold, grain and slaves. Prince Vlad the Impaler often refuses to pay the tribute and conducts terrible wars against the Ottomans. However, the Ottomans militarily support the more obedient Wallachian Prince Radu the Handsome to gain the throne. Captain Ion, an officer in Prince Vlad's guard, uncovers a major plot to kill Prince Vlad. He also falls for Ilinca, the daughter of court advisor Flor. Unfortunatelly, Ilinca is engaged to Andrei, a noble sympathetic to the Ottomans and to Prince Radu the Handsome's bid for the throne of Wallachia. Written by nufs68

a poor film
22 June 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

like many others from the same period. the sins - the dialogues, the didactic script, the fake manner to adapted a good novel, the uninspired style to send the message. patriotic duty and the traitor. the Charming Prince and his impossible love story. fragments from Romanian fairy tales. and the figure of Vlad Țepeș. the story has not rhythm or real purpose. after decades, it is only strange, amusing , almost stupid try of propaganda for education of young people. the obvious good intentions of director and actors are out of reason front to a bad script. sure, it is not an isolated case. but it reminds the spirit of a period.
