Storyline

The Iron Guard, also known as Legion of Archangel Michael, was a Romanian nationalist and patriotic movement of extreme right; as such, after it rose to power, it supported Nazi Germany and started a fierce campaign of retaliation against its political enemies. As such, in the night of November 26-27, 1940, the Death Teams executed forty political prisoners in the Jilava prison (in the movie, named "Viraga"), and next day, other two Teams arrested and shot the former minister Virgil Madgearu and the world famous historian Nicolae Iorga (in the movie: Costin Märgeanu and Nicolae Jugu). To squash down the political outcry, the Police Prefect Stefan Zävoianu (Visan Nävodeanu) conveniently assigns the cases to a commissioner from the "Morals Division" (prostitution, thieves), Tudor Moldovan, hoping that he will fail to get to the bottom of the case. However, Moldovan has communist sympathies, so he quickly comes under the influence of the Bolshevik Pîrvu, who had escaped during the Viraga... Written by Mihnea Columbeanu

Zavoianu: Dincä what shall we do? Vicsoreanu turns me crazy, and Panaitescu ruthlessly warned me: if anything leaks out, he'll hang us...
Alexandru Dincä: I have the solution in my pocket. We assign a smart inspector, liked by the people and not being an Iron Guard. This way, we put everybody's worries to sleep, and we follow with our plan.
Zavoianu: We don't need a too smart one. We risk that he turns all our plans upside down.

Communist propaganda
18 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Extremely long, boring, unrealistic, lying, silly, comical through its stupidness, typical Soviet machine propaganda "movie".

I've barely watched it just to see how much more they can invent and misrepresent the reality, what really happened, how really was, the HISTORICAL TRUTH, for their own good, for the mass brain washing purposes.

If you don't know anything about 1940 Romania and you'd like to know everything or at least a little bit, all you have to do is to reverse the nonsense shown here at a 180 degrees angle.

Or to remember that this movie was made by the worst Communist dictatorship in Europe, representing a doctrine that killed between 120 and 160 million people...
