This film recounts post IInd world war exploits from the official biography of the man who ruled Rumania for many years, Nicolae Ceausescu. As Ceausescu was at the height of his power over the country at the time this film was made, this is a very, very careful film. Questions of propaganda and historical accuracy aside, the film's dramatizations of Ceausescu's early power struggles and the principles he sets forth for the administration of government are very interesting. Also, the movie has an irony which is more evident if you watch the movie now, especially the younger generation which doesn't know almost anything about the communist regime in post war Romania. In this movie you will see a suite of very good Romanian actors which did their best to do a good movie.
