Deep in the Transylvanian Alps, the Archangels gold mine is the stage for an epic battle of characters. The arrogant owner is struggling with perceptions of ghosts in the mind of the miners. A maverick free-lance miner is helping him to find the source of terrifying noises that frightened his workers. A story of love, greed and betrayal having the rugged landscape of central Transylvania as a background. With few notable exceptions, everyone seems to have forgotten the biblical “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also (Matthew 6:21)”

Still burning news, 16 April 2005
Author: tlespagnol from Romania
This movie, as well as others from Nicolae Margineanu is now available on DVD with subtitles in English, German, French and Spanish. Look for Ager-film Editions in the web. It’s seldom enough for Romanian films to be worth mentioning. Shot a year after the famous “Pandureanca”, we notice a bit of the same mysterious atmosphere produced by awesome landscapes and silent looks. Some of the landscapes shown in this film are now endangered by the project of a Canada-based mining company which projects to create there the largest open-air gold-mine in Europe. Fears for the ecological balance of the whole region is big. Gold still drives people crazy, thus making the film of a burning actuality.
