Quotes:
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.
Alexandru Dincä:I'll handle the details. The investigation will conclude that the massacre at Viraga was the work of the communists who were trying to escape from the prison, while the other assassinations where operated by certain types who managed to vanish.
Zavoianu:Who do you propose?
Alexandru Dincä:You will see.
Tudor Moldovan:Commisioner Moldovan
Zavoianu:Mr. Moldovan, General Director Dinca has recommended you for a very difficult assignament. I am sure you will carry it to a good ending.
Tudor Moldovan:Vigara?
Zavoianu:So, you can read people's mind, commissioner...

A surprisingly good action movie., 13 May 2008
Author: Mihnea the Pitbull from Romania

For the time when it was shot, "Un comisar acuzä" was surprisingly well done, catchy and fast paced. Unfortunately, it was also paying tribute to the communist propaganda, depicting the Iron Guards as gorilla-type hoodlums, when everyone in Romania knows they were ascetic and cultured looking intellectuals and students, with a touch of religious and nationalist fanaticism (a bit closer to the truth are the portrayals in "Actorul si sälbaticii", although that's also a history-misshaping movie). In the same vein, Tudor Moldovan remains a cardboard character, with poorly disguised communist sympathies - and worse, the director's conformism becomes obvious in the useless scenes showing the communist illegal printing presses and leaflets, closed with the slogan: "Let's unite our forces around the Romanian Communist Party!" But, after all, who needs historical truth and political honesty in a James Bond-type movie about a super-commissioner? True to himself, Sergiu Nicolaescu brings again on screen ancient cars that crash all together, fly over each other like Baudelaire's Albatross and explode like as many fireworks... Gunshots galore, bullet-impact effects all over the cast, stunt-men, extras and sets, slow-motion shots with a touch of poetic sarcasm (by the way, the hotel stairway scene is a faithful copy-paste from John Milius' "Dillinger", with just two additions: two victims instead of one, and slow-motion). Kudos for the photography of Nicolae Girardi (uncredited; it was signed only by Alexandru David), for the nervous editing of Dan Naum, and mainly for the thrilling score by Richard Oschanitzky. All in all, a delicious piece of entertaining adventure.
