birth of a nation
31 August 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

it is far to be a comfortable film. because it is an exercise to propose a realistic version of the clash between Romans and Dacians. but a forbidden love story, looking for give a symbolic solution, it is not the best choice. like "Dacii", it is a film of portraits. Decebal, Ciungul, Gerula, Andrada, Tiberius, the great priest, the presence of many foreign actors in a Romanian film, as proof of the independent policy of Comunist Party in the Eastern Europe are pieces defining a film who , not ignoring the sins, remains interesting.
