the war after war
28 September 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

good performance, beautiful images. another exercise of exorcism for a culture who not only remember but has its roots in a dark period. result - a correct film about love, sacrifice, ideal, fight and personal tragedies as parts from national drama. and only sin of film is the common style. after many movies about Civil War traces, it remains one for them. sure, it is not an error maybe for the splendid acting of actresses or for the flavor of period. but , after its end, impression is the same - it would be better. because, more than an adaptation, this genre of film must be, in essence, a manifesto. in contrary case, it is only a small piece from a long chain who remember, again and again, faces of a profound crime.
