about war
17 June 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

at first sigh, an experiment. because , in the first part, has the ambition to propose a different story about war, not original but useful for escape from the recipes of propaganda. in the second part ,the desire becomes good intention. the music, the acting maintain the aura of poetry of sacrifice and duty and discover the other and equality front to the death. but each is only fragment used on the wall of others well known solutions. the best detail, who saves the story and impose it as seductive memory for Romanian public - the collaboration between Marin Preda and Mircea Muresan. sure, it is a touching, beautiful story with a great potential. the exploration of essence of facts, emotions and gestures is ignored. but the viewer, the viewer from that period, reads suggestions and tricks and flavor of a state of fact. for the others, the music and the acting are enough.
