Good, entertaining movie despite technical flaws

If you don't mind the black and white image, the unequal quality of the sound, the strange camera work (important parts of the scenes were off the screen at times, which I found a bit confusing. I wonder if it was intentional or just bad cinematography?), and the loud annoying music during the fight scenes, then this is a quite enjoyable movie.

The acting is very good. A bit too theatrical and melodramatic for my taste, but again, these were all very famous Romanian theater actors, and I guess in those times (the 60s), that was the way they acted.

Amza Pellea is the bad guy for a change, and he is very convincing. I also liked Toma Caragiu in the role of the fake priest and the always hilarious Jean Constantin as the gypsy servant.

The plot is very good, with many twists and turns. All in all, an enjoyable movie, especially for Romanians who want to see their childhood movies and actors again or for people familiar with the Romanian history.
