A worthy action movie
25 July 2007 | by (Bucharest, Romania) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent action-thriller movie about the resistance against the communist regime in the 1950s Romania. The script had to pass the special Romanian communist propaganda committee, so that the resistance members in the mountains were officially called bandits and outlaws fighting against "democracy". In reality the resistance against communism was fierce and the regime had to struggle more than ten years to wipe it. They are all now considered local heroes and freedom fighters in Romania. Nevertheless, due to the fact that the movie was released during the communist regime, it had to sustain the official propaganda, so the writers and directors had no personal choice, beside giving up the project. Still, the movie has the "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" effect, where the public is emotionally attached to the villains in the film, an effect that the communist propaganda could not control. It is really an interesting movie to see: great action, great actors and a climactic ending.
