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

A classic
13 June 2007 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

During the communist era one had to be very cautious when talking about the old regime, and especially the "Iron Guard" or general Ion Antonescu. It is almost a miracle that Sergiu Nicolaescu was able to make a film set in the historical frame of the early 1940's. Although the Communist Party made different modifications into the initial script, adding scenes or lines praising the activity of the communists, the film remains a milestone in the history of Romanian cinematography and the historical events depicted are quite accurate. Perhaps the best thing now would be a director's cut where the scenes forcibly imposed by the Communist Party to be erased.
