The Rest Is Silence / Nae Caranfil

It’s no easy thing having a rich father. Grig is the 19-year-old son of a star of the National Theater at the beginning of the 20th century. His own achievements are, however, slightly disappointing… Too short to be on stage, too shy with women, too excessive in his lifestyle, the son is about to make the greatest mistake, to commit the one thing his father would consider an unforgivable sin: to direct a movie! He is dreaming of the most grandiose and long film to ever be made. It will be the exact retelling of the war against the Turks in which Romania gained its independence, 35 years ago…
