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
For 20 years I have been waiting for a Romanian movie that I could actually enjoy. Don't get me wrong, I am not about to comment from an advised point of view the post-revolutionary Romanian cinematography - I am sure it is of great value, but I have simple tastes - I like emotions and I like beauty wherever I can find it. Seeing this movie I was moved to tears by its simple yet very clever story, nice decent humor and lovely settings. And hearing again my lovely language - I cannot tell you what it felt like - no swearing, no ugly words, just pure poetry. THANK YOU. This last part of my message is addressed to the administrator of the IMDb site. I must say I am not particularly pleased with this rule that states that our comments must be at least 10 rows long. Comments should be as lengthy as they must be, I see no reason why I should invent things just to get published.
