About Sergiu Nicolaescu
Sergiu Florin Nicolaescu (born 13 April 1930) is a Romanian film director, actor and politician. He is best known for his historical movies, such as Mihai Viteazul (1970, released in English both under the equivalent title Michael the Brave and also as The Last Crusade), Dacii (1966, Les Guerriers), Razboiul Independenţei (1977, War of Independence), as well as for his series of thrillers that take place in the interwar Kingdom of Romania, such as Un comisar acuză (1973, A Police Inspector Calls). He is one of the most popular film directors in Romania.Early life and education Sergiu Nicolaescu was born in Târgu Jiu, but he grew up in Timişoara, where his family moved when he was 5 years old. He graduated from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest as a mechanical engineer. After graduation he started to work as a camera operator. Film director Nicolaescu's debut as a director was in 1962 with the short film Scoicile nu au vorbit niciodată (Shells Have Never Spoken). His first feature film was the 1966 French-Romanian co-production Dacii (Les Guerriers). Nicolaescu continued his film-making career by directing a large number of movies and also starring in many of his own movies. Most of Nicolaescu's movies are centered on figures and events in Romanian history, and be they with a greater realism, they somehow followed the patterns of the historical movies in the Communist countries. During the Communist period, some of his movies were seen as ground-breaking through their way of publicly presenting Romanian history, while other insisted on a heroical dimension. For instance, the movie "Războiul independenţei" was the first Communist-era Romanian file to present a Romanian king (namely Carol I) in a positive fashion. On the other hand, Mircea (1989, also known as Proud Heritage) is less realized artistically, including a legendary, standardised version of reality, common in the European communist countries. Nevertheless, Mircea was officially blocked from distribution, until the Romanian Revolution of 1989 (All I've done was to present a different state leader than Ceauşescu. He understood and stopped the movie ). After the latter, Nicolaescu expanded on historical themes, directing films that shed a positive light on Ion Antonescu, Romania's Axis-aligned dictator in the World War II period (his Începutul adevărului, also known as Oglinda), or glorified the World War I heroine Ecaterina Teodoroiu (Triunghiul morţii, "Triangle of Death"). An accomplished director of battle scenes, Nicolaescu allegedly produces 70-80 meters of useful shots in the time that the average other director would take to produce 12-15 meters. Although his recent films have not been as popular as his earlier productions, he continues to direct new films, such as Orient Express (2004) or Cincisprezece (2005), a love story set against the background of the 1989 Revolution.
