“Sergiu Nicolaescu will stay in the memory of his audience like a freeze frame of his handsome image with a gun as a natural prolongation of his hand, ready to die for justice in a time of great unjustice. Before that there existed another image, in Dacii
/ THE DACIANS, -there justice was made by means of sword and there were other images of him such as that of a sea wanderer, avenger, fighter, always that of a fighter.Yes, he impersonates the justice knight and fight is his vocation. The reason to exist of this director-actor, born to be both of them alike, successfully, born to be master and servant all in one”.(Alice Mănoiu
