 I just finished watching the movie again, and can say that it is indeed a jewel of a movie, with a lot of meaning to everyone. I enjoyed seeing the North Train Station in Bucharest, which was a daily place for me being in my neighborhood.
Please visit the website bellow for more information on the movie, the actors, the theme, and to find out more about the life and work of Mircea Eliade, the historian of religions, who understood man’s necessity to know his ancestry and create the first ancestor’s sacred story. He also understood the common memory of civilization, with all the variations in completely isolated geographic areas, and in different historic times. Our stories are the very close in space and time. Our needs have been similar, from the beginning of time, only the means to attend to those needs may have been different: Still the fundamental idea that one is bound to do the right thing as a virtue, and character permeates thru this movie, and thru Mircea Eliade’s life and work.
