“Restul e tacere” / “The Rest is Silence” is a movie about movie director Grig Ursache and the financial tycoon Leon Negrescu 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. The movie blends really well truth and legend (Grig Ursache is based on the real director/writer/actor Grigore Brezeanu, while Leon Negrescu is based on Leon Popescu, land owner, member of the Senate and Parliament)

The movie itself is well written, well acted, filled to the brim with very good and famous Romanian movie and theater actors (Vizante is playing his best role so far). All in all, a great watch, one of the best Romanian movies out there. Five popcorns.
