9 October 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the atmosphere is the key of a decent adaptation of the novel by Panait Istrati. in same measure, the music and costumes. few good performances- Iulia Dumitru, Mircea Rusu, surprising Ștefan Iancu. magic as ingredient for intensive the flavor of a story who seems be collection of colored pieces.mysteries, violence, traces of eastern. and, sure, Brăila. the accuracy in the limit of a film who seems be homage to the universe of Istrati is not the best part because the fantastic part remains easy solution for conquer a large public but not the most inspired option for respect the literary source. so, one of the Romanian films looking the right key of success. with same clichés and drops of eroticism, it is a decent adaptation and, in same measure, another example of the difficulty to translate, in the right manner, of the work of Panait Istrati.
