The B.D. series, (Brigada Diverse = Police Miscellaneous Brigade), was among last great comedy made in the last years of "opening" years of communism. It's a funny story about 3 funny delinquent which every time start by trying to be "just legally" but finishing in the same place: prison.
It's a comedy of happenings, a burlesque or a simply movie but where you can see few of the greatest comic actors of the modern Romanian cinematography.
Even the screenplay looks today obsolescent, anachronical B.D. series it's always a pleasure to see even for the past away great actors Toma Caragiu, Puiu Calinescu, Dem Radulescu and a lot more.
B.D. în alerta (1970) B.D. intra în actiune (1970) B.D. la munte si la mare (1971)
