Nae Caranfil is the most respectable Romanian movie director. So great that his works are not fully appreciated for their great value. “Too good to be true” certainly applies to his films and for this one – Closer to the moon -in particular he had a different approach.
So, let me start by saying that I wasn’t a big fan of the Rocky movies when I was a kid. Boxing wasn’t my thing (as it is now). I knew and was motivated by the eye of the tiger song and clips, but didn’t made an impact as a film in my childhood. Although I appreciated Stallone as he is for me even today, the Demolition Man.
