| The real name of the movie is Hill 786 and it is made by the young Dimăncescu, who died short time ago while shooting another of his films.
He used for some part of the documentary reenactors from Asociaţia 6 Dorobanţi from Bucharest, to depict romanian soldiers from WW1.

Interesting movie - it worth the time I diverted from an engineering exam waiting ahead. Click "Like" in YouTube if you like it !
P.S.: 1. The short explanations made by the Romanian Major from our days should have been translated in English subtitles - it is a good documentary, that may draw attention from non-Romanian viewers as well
2. The Romanian subtitles miss the real meaning in English from time to time, but not that bad
3. Most important: the Romanian petroleum was important for Germany in 1916...1917, but not as important as in WW Two. It was nevertheless much closer to Germany than another major source of petroleum: the oil fields from Iraq, back then a province of the Ottoman Empire - an ally of Germany. Due to the actions of the Arabs fighting alongside "Lawrence of Arabia", sometime in 1918 the transportation was cut between the oil fields of Iraq and Europe. But by that time the petroleum production in Romania was somehow repaired, and in that moment Romania became really important as oil source. However, Romania was under Central Powers occupation to the end of WWI, so petroleum was not such a big problem for Germany.

Oops, my apologies, forgot the fact that this is an English-speaking forum. And yes, I actually diverted 45 minutes from a physics exam, just to watch it.

You do not need to apologize.
If am assuming the documentary was intended for TV networks – I am wondering if only for Romanian audiences, or more than that. If it was only for Romanian audiences, of course the Major's words won't need English sub-titles.
If I would be the gentleman who posted it on YouTube, I would type the subtitles myself – free software like "Windows Live Movie Maker" can do it before you send the movie into YouTube. Well, that's it – it is very nice that he posted the movie in YouTube.

| Unfortunately, the young documentary director Nicholas Dimancescu, who made this film, died last year on May 22. He was only 26 years old. He was a very talented and good person.
