This movie is about the dramatic events that took place in Timisoara, Romania, during the Revolution from December 1989
It is said that those who do not learn from the mistakes of the past are doomed to re-live them. This movie is about the mistakes of the past. It's one of the most dramatical movies I've ever seen. It's about the tragedy of one family during the bloody events that took place in Timisoara, Romania, in December 1989, that ended with the collapse of the communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu and the death of 1100 people.
The movie is called 15, because the events took place over time, both in December 1989 and December 2004, when a Romanian journalist from a Parisian newspaper returns to Romania to write an article about the changes from the collapse of Ceausescu's regime, 15 years ago. She's in the search of a child told to have been born in the orthodox cathedral in Timisoara, in the days of the Revolution of 1989. The most scenes of the film take place in December 1989 and represent the drama of this boy's parents.
It definitely worth seeing.
