Storyline

In 1911-12, the Romanian movie director Grigore Brezianu and the financial tycoon Leon Popescu made together the 2 hours long movie "Romania's Independence" - an as faithful as possible screen adaptation of the real Independence War that had been fought in 1877. Now, "Restul e tacere" tells us, in a loose and half-fictionalized way, the story of this movie making. Written by Mihnea Columbeanu

A much better view
6 March 2008 | by soadjackassSee all my reviews

The latest hits of Romanian cinematography are all movies which show Romania in gray tones. So far they've been successful and i really appreciate those movies but it's about time that a director does the normal thing, to change the pace of Romanian films a little. Through the magic of Nae Caramfil and the help of a consistent budget, we have a film good enough to compare with Hollywood productions and who still keeps his artistic integrity and doesn't fall into commercialism.

The script is brilliant and fearless, with cleaver lines and a language to suit the depicted times.

Marius Vizante has a great performance as a frustrated but proud young director, and Ovidiu Niculescu's unlikely (Niculescu having neither the age, neither the stature of Leon Negrescu) cast in the role of Leon proved to be a really good choice.

I sincerely believe that this movie will be a milestone in Romanian cinematography and i hope that many as good as this one will follow.
