The Rest Is Silence | 2007
Bucharest, 1911. Grigore Ursaru, a nineteen year old actor thrilled with the emergence of the cinema, decides to become a director and make "The War of Independence," a reconstruction of the 1877 struggle between the Romanians, Russians, and the Turks, which led to Romania achieving its independence. In order to realize this ambitious project, he wages an ideological, political and familial campaign to prove cinema has a promising future and is about to become an art form in its own right. However, things do not go all that smoothly. His project is continually held up by the local authorities and various film entities. Grigore, however, refuses to let anything get in the way of his dream.
