Toma Caragiu king of political Comedy
14 July 2006 | by DribblerHDSee all my reviews

Toma Caragiu (Captain Panait) is one of the greatest romanian actors which makes the "Brigada diverse" (Miscellaneous Department of Romanian Police) aka "B.D." series, one of the funniest romanian comedy movies ever to be released in the period of communism in Romania. The script makers and the courageous actors successfully merged the film's plot with subtile jokes and gags spread throughout the entire movie, thus ironizing the political system in Romania. This fact gave the romanian people watching the movie in that period, much hope through laughter. Even in that awful situation of political tirany, people could speak their minds, transmitting an important message: "THEY ARE WRONG, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. LAUGH AND BE FREE !". I recommend this movie to whoever wants to analyse that period in Romanian history, get a king- size laugh, or both. Thank you Toma !
