a great film
10 July 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Maybe, the performance of Dorel Visan is the lead motif to see this film. or the force of image. or the plot. or the courage of Daneliuc to propose a protest manifesto against a sick political regime. short, a great movie. about life, survive and the need to be yourself.
