the fight against communism's myth
2 February 2006 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I didn't thought that Romanian are capable of making such a movie. This movie is about our roots (Romanian), about our illusions, about our nightmares. Not only for those born after '90 the communism appears in a mythical form, but most for those who lived than and who have been educated to forget, not to put themselves many questions and the most important not to try to find answers. .... "Communism" and "humanity" are antonyms!!! This movie shows the communist era "in all it's splendor" - a moral cancer which is spreading irreversible in all the corners of the Romanian society. There are written many books - and there will be more- about this, but words fade when side by side whit images ... i think this movie will mark a turn in some lives.
