“She is the decent fun,  the innocence played between accomplice peeks, the malice in her voice breaking in a deliberate acute only to give sense to a false serious replica, she is the guffaw facing an intelligently silly, treacherous honeyed smile, she is, from all of her self a comedy actress and nobody wants to see her otherwise. Nobody wants to miss her actual good mood image.”(Eva Sîrbu, Magazin estival Cinema 1980)

Tamara Buciuceanu on the acting calling:
 “THE ACTOR is moulded out of a special dough. He has a great amount of yeast and rises under one’s eyes.But only in conditions of heat. If cold, not only it won’t rise but it will draw in.”
