The british film director Alexis Sweet Cahill built the image of a less known moment in the history of Romania, but of an essential importance for a people in danger of losing its borders. The music is composed by Giancarlo Russo and played by the National Radio Symphonic Orchestra of Bulgaria.
“Reading her life story, I got to be extremely passionate about the personality of Her Majesty. Queen Marie was a woman who had a life filled with
intrigues, passion, loves that deserves being translated onto the big screen. In the screenplay that I received from the producer Gabi Antal, there`s only a small part of the Queen`s life, but it is a crucial one. A colossal episode in the history of Romania.
