Samples from the collectivization campaign
13 June 2011 | by Radu FloreaSee all my reviews

Typical communist propaganda movie - set up in the early '60s, in rural Romania, part of the collectivization campaign. Was meant to motivate young people to live and work in the poor rural areas under collective farming structures (CAP). Meanwhile, from the late 1940s to the late 1960s, the communist government was establishing the reign of terror, carried out mainly through the secret police, launching other several campaigns to eliminate "enemies of the state" (individuals who were killed or imprisoned for arbitrary political or economic reasons). As expected, the script is poor, as well as the acting. One could only smile, shut off the TV after 10 minutes of this movie, and pray those times would never come back!
