Poster for Manasse Manasse was inspired by the play by Ronetti Roman (1853 - 1908) with the same title and had a major contribution to the development of the cinematography as well as to the stabilization of the director concept in the Romanian film. The events in Jean Mihail's masterpiece take place in a small town in the south of Romania at the beginning of the 20th century. Partially cast in the city of Fălticeni, and with the theme of religious intolerance, the film, extremely dramatic and remarkably visual, has as its background a beautiful love story between a Romanian, Matei Frunza and a Jew, Lelia, the granddaughter of Manasse Cohen.
