The film tells the story of Ion Creangă, who charmed generations with his fairy tales and stories, and his relationship with Mihai Eminescu, the great national poet. Creangă considers his stories a simple source of amusement, devoid of depth, but Mihai Eminescu tries to convince him that he has a special talent. The poet has his own problems, being involved in an impossible love affair with Veronica Micle.

Good movie, filled with popular quotes, a nice pacing and some funny bits. All in all, a good Romanian movie, Four popcorns.

PS: Couldn’t find a trailer, so there’s the full movie after the jump.
