Storyline

A moving coming of age story in a time of extreme change: on August 23, 1944 in a small city in Romanian Transylvania, the 16 year old Felix Goldschmidt awaits his classmates for their traditional Exitus Party (school graduation). However, this very day the kingdom of Romania takes leave of its ally of many years - Nazi Germany - thus ending the 800 year old, highly successful story of ethnic German immigration at the feet of the Carpathian Mountains. It is a great story of young people's blindness to the rise of Fascism, the destruction of bourgeois values, a first love and shattered friendships. Written by Anonymous

A timeless masterpiece
25 February 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I was intrigued even from the start of the film by the appearance of the symbol itself (a beheaded rooster) that creates an atmosphere which is ominous and dark ,if Balkanic, within very light and warm images portraying the Saxon civilization from Transylvania at the beginning of WWII.

The freshness of the main cast, along with the wonderful lightness of the images and the dreamlike music, make this film of a complexity and depth that needs to be discovered and re-discovered.

I don't think it fits in any kind of trend, genre, wave, school or generation into which some people try to include it.

"The Beheaded Rooster" is simply a wonderful film.
