The article evokes the personality of actor Ştefan Ciubotăraşu who also played in important stage plays and memorable films, many with a theme related to the Romanian village.

Ştefan Ciubotăraşu, along with other actors whose characters were related to the Romanian village, reached their great artistic performances not necessarily due to school or some special methods of approaching the characters, but because they inherited a light and brought it with them from their native places, sometimes small and remote villages, places where pure traditions and customs have nourished their inner beauty flooding afterwards from the screen and stages towards us. It is appropriate to observe the fantastic resource these actors brought in theater and film, a resource that had its own source in the ancient values of the Romanian village of older days.
