A harsh critique of the irrationality of power
12 November 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

It's obvious why the Communist regime has banned this great film, as in many places it's not even that subtle in its critique of the stupidity of 're-education' and of abuse. Many lines in the film may thus be understood in that key as being aimed directly at the regime itself.

This is a political film, of course, but not at all propagandistic, although sometimes it may feel strangely and almost imperceptibly exaggerated (I can't explain this, it occurs to me in Pintilie's other films, too). There is of course great acting, first of all from George Mihaita, Ernest Maftei and Ileana Popovici (she had an excellent mix of child-like innocence and the cruel whims of a nascent seductress).

Watch this movie to see what Communism did to everyday people.
