Olga Tudorache

  • Died: 18.10.2017 in Bucharest
Graduate of the Theatre and Film Institute (1951 class).
”Olga Tudorache’s characters are rolling down, are submerging all unable to cope with them and are doing this not only with the force but also with the recklessness of the flood. She never intended to crush  her partner-characters, nevertheless her mere presence seizes so intensely our attention that for the time you have her in front of your eyes it is almost impossible to observe anything else. Even in a motionless scene like the one of the burial of Hangerloaia in Bietul Ioanide, her presence fascinates.Olga Tudorache has truly the force of great waterfalls.Facing them only the strong resist.” (Eva Sîrbu, Magazin estival Cinema 1980)
