Buna ziua! Multumesc pentru prezentare! Este uimitor cati romani de exceptie exista! Si totusi!!! Cred ca nici nu se vrea sa se stie despre cei buni, ci doar despre faptele rele facute de unii...
Nu stiu daca ati scris despre Jean Negulescu, John Houseman si Edward G. Robinson.

Despre Negulesco si Robinson am scris deja, multumesc pentru sugestia cu Houseman!

Exista un motor de cautare prin care sa gasim mai usor unele materiale pe care le-ati postat? Stiti ca eu nu ma prea pricep! Multumesc!

Din pacate blogul nu are functie de cautare; incercati pe google ceva de genul "jean negulesco true romania", de multe ori da rezultate.

O cunosc pe simona din copilarie, pe cand eram la liceul de coregrafie din Cluj.
Am pierdut contactul.
Am stiut dintoteauna ca va ajunge o mare balerina.
Alaturi de oricine parea un diletant.
Era aproape imposibil ca staua ei sa nu straluceasca in lume.

Ma gindesc des la tine,

Cristina P
