The three episodes, narrated in Romanian by Melania Medeleanu and in English by Peter Venn, take you on a thrilling adventure through stunning and difficult-to-reach locations, telling fascinating anecdotes about Romania’s biodiversity.
I watched the movie dizzy with such beauty. And if I usually want my voice to be heard when I speak, this time I wanted it to be more whispered, to add information without distracting from the song of nature. I read with love and emotion and, especially, with gratitude to those who brought the wild beauty of our Romania to the screens.Melania Medeleanu
