Reviewer's Opinion
„Already having made a name for himself as a documentary filmmaker, with inconvenient films, some of them rejected by Communist censorship (Maria Tănase, Cota zero, ScrisoareaMariei Tănase) director Laurențiu Damian comes today face to face with his audience. The second fiction feature signed by the young filmmaker, Drumul câinilor (Dogs' Road) was inspired by a novel by Ion Lăncrănjan. The period when the Communist repression started in rural areas are evoked analytically by the filmmaker in a psychological drama.” (Călin Stănculescu, România liberă, 20.11.1992)
