Trivia The main character's full name is Dante Remus Lazarescu. It has multiple connotations and possible meanings: Italian poet Dante Alighieri wrote in his "Divine Comedy" of the circles of hell. Remus was a co-founder of ancient Rome, killed by his twin. 'Lazarescu' reminds us of the biblical character Lazarus, who was lucky enough to find someone who could raise him from the dead. At the same time, 'Lazarescu' is a very common surname in Romania. The second forename 'Remus' is not quite as common, but does exist in Romania. Only the Italian forename Dante is rather unusual for Romania. See more »
