A sequel to a landmark of Romanian cinema continues the genealogy of the peasants’ family that tries to preserve some time-honored values, setting the story in the post-World War II era and focusing on the figure of Niculae, the youngest son of the patriarch Ilie Moromete.

Moromete Family: On the Edge of TimeDirected byStere Gulea
3,2 / Great main character interpreted by Horatiu Malaele... but, I wish he could speak more distinct (and other characters, too), sometimes was really difficult to understand what he says. Good, great cinematography and actors, brilliant lines, and good bitter-sweet humour, caustic more often than not, Marin Preda's like. Though M2 is visible less substantiated than the first part of series.
