Sânpetru, a piece of history

In the commune of Sânpetru, county of Brașov, besides the legends of the place, the locals have many memories of the participation in the most important events related to nation unity and the cinematographic history, in which the commune has played an important role. It should be noted that a part of the history of Romanian cinematography can be linked to the commune of Sânpetru.

Three Romanian films

Three Romanian films, one of which was a Romanian-French co-production, were cast on the territory of our commune years ago. Sânpetru is one of the few localities in the country that has in the bookshelves of the communal library valuable books written by famous Romanian writers that were made into movies. The inhabitants of Sânpetru remember very well how they used to watch the film crew and even appeared in the films as extras. The first film made in Sânpetru in 1955 was „Moara cu Noroc” by Ion Slavici, directed by Victor Iliu. The main cast: Ioana Bulca, Constantin Codrescu, Colea Răutu, Gheorghe Ghiţulescu and others.

Image of the village in the film

The second film shot in Sânpetru in 1971 was „Mirii anului II”, a Romanian-French co-production directed by Jean Paul Rappeneau, a comedy full of adventures inspired by the French Revolution. Thus, authentic images of the Romanian village were captured in the film to be preserved for future generations. The last film shot in Sânpetru in 1977 was „Aurel Vlaicu”, a biographical film dedicated to Aurel Vlaicu, a pioneer of world aviation. The film presents his life in a romantic light.

Reviving history in the year of Romania’s Centennial

The Mayor of Sânpetru, Ion Rusu, says that „We are permanently striving to bring the heritage of the commune to the foreground and make it known to the world. I do not know how many people still remember that these films were shot here, in our commune. Maybe just a few of those who participated as extras in the shooting of the films. In the year of Romania’s Centennial, we want to celebrate the Great Union by organizing some events. I am glad we found old photos, a monograph, a notebook belonging to a little girl who was a pupil at our school during the war, and several old photographs of inhabitants of Sânpetru who fought on the front in World War I.”
