Storyline

When the Soviet Army marched into Romania in 1944, a part of the Romanian population went "into the mountains" - a diverse assortment of nationalists and fascists, liberals, apolitical farmers and members of the middle-class, who were affected by the Communists' expropriations. Over a thousand armed resistance groups took refuge in the inaccessible forests of the Carpathian Mountains where they waited in vain for the support of the Western Allies. One of them was led by Ion Gavrila-Ogoranu, who managed to remain undetected until 1976 when he was arrested. This film depicts the daily existence of this group. It tells the story of a struggle that became an end in itself, as the enemy was constantly in pursuit and arrest meant torture and often liquidation. Hungry and emotionally withdrawn, the group of young men got entangled in a partisan war that could not be won, lost in the landscape of the South Carpathians, accompanied by a vigilant secret police, the Securitate.

8 June 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

more than a film, it is a testimony. cruel, fresh, profound. a kind a documentary. instrument to stop forgiveness. so, the opinion must be more subtle. because the desire of director is obvious - build a chronicle of Romanian resistance against Communism. the story of Ioan Gavrilă - Ogoraru and his group. and the work was impressive, behind ordinary errors of this ambitious step, behind the Manichean parts, behind the passion who makes things only skin of shadows. it is a courageous project. sad, harsh, honest, far from pink surrogates. it is drawing of truth, sufferance and sacrifice. its seed - Memorialul durerii. its heart - the conscience of past as modeling of present. a gray movie. mixture of fear, ideal, mud and strong values. a lesson - film. about the root of a society. and a vision about fight against pure evil.
