Who was Nicolae STEINHARDT? See a page on Wikipedia for him, read some texts and see some photos on OrhodoxPhotos.com, if you speak Romanian there is also a blog on his texts. 1. History of events The spring of 1999: I am in the yard of a high-school in Constanta, waiting for a regional contest for a subject in the curricula (if you were good at a specific subject, you could compete with fellow pupils from the County – “Olympiad” it was called). This was a few years I discovered Gala GALACTION, an Orthodox Christian writer I mostly admired for what it seemed to me was the closest resemblance to the Christian values. This implied a lot of fanatical/bigot values. I won’t get into too much details, but to me, at that time, Orthodoxy was merely a set of rules – living by those rules would make things right for me. If those rules meant breaking conventional wisdom – well, this is fine also. Gala GALACTION was the ultimate model in Orthodox life for me, nothing else ever existed. So, I’m that yard, in a morning. I was talking with a girl I barely new, also from Navodari. She recommends me a Jew writer converted to Orthodoxy in the prison.

Le Notti di Cabiria / Noptile Cabiriei / Nights of Cabiria (1957): uita-te la filmul asta fie si doar ca sa ai motiv sa vezi alte filme

O sa te duc in acest mesaj al meu prin toate starile pe care mi le-a provocat mie filmul: o sa iti dau motive tehnice (care pot fi considerate obiective) sa nu te uiti la filmul asta, apoi (daca inca mai citesti) o sa iti dau cateva motive tehnice (tot obiective) sa te uiti, o sa iti dau si niste motive subiective pentru care sa nu te uiti la film, dar si unele pentru care sa te uiti. O sa fac si o caracterizare a personajului principal. In fine, o sa iti arat motivul – caci e doar unul, si e cumplit de subiectiv – pentru care acest film e o capodopera pentru mine. Asta ca sa stii ce te asteapta. :D

Avertisment: mesajul contine spoilers, nu citi daca iti e frica sa pierzi suspansul filmului, mai bine citesti dupa ce te uiti la film.
