Storyline

After WWII "Comisarul Moldova" (Sergiu Nicolaescu / Petr Falc) spent years as a political prisoner of the communist regime. The favorite entertainment of the Russian Colonel in charge of the prison was to have the inmates play Russian Roulette. Only his unbelievable luck and survivor spirit helped Moldovan live through his detention. Out of the prison the ex-policeman joins an international Russian Roulette illegal gaming circuit. In late 70's faith brings him to a Central Eurpean town where Goldberg (Vladimir Gaitan / Cristian Motiu), an old acquaintance of his is organizing an "improved" version of the game where two opponents are shooting each other. Step by step Moldovan meets lots of familiar faces, both friends and enemies. It looks like the whole Bucharest's underworld from the 40's chose to meet here. Written by Noel Kardaris

Pathetically ridiculous
28 December 2008 | by Mihnea_aka_PitbullSee all my reviews

Poor Sergiu created again a faulty toy, meant to be a sort of mechanic "action man", and turning out as a skinny teddy-bear that makes "meouw" instead of "grrr". :)) It's really sad to see this tired warming-up of the old "commissioner Moldovan" movies, which had been more or less acceptable ("Un comisar acuzä" - good enough; "Revansa" - mediocre: "Duelul" - acceptably bad). "Supravietuitorul" has an inept, illogical and nonsensical script, an extremely awkward and amateurish directing, and it's disastrously played - further, it insists to use some non-entities as Ileana Lazariuc (AND to show her shaved pubis, although in A.D. 1940 this fashion was still some distant dream of the future) and Loredana Groza (who uselessly makes oral noise to no end, in a so-called "musical scene"), only in an attempt to attract audiences - which it really does, unfortunately, since Romania still holds a sizable proportion of troglodyte spectators willing to throw their money out for such aberrations.

Peter Falc, poor him, as the young commissioner, arrives only to make a fool of himself. He doesn't look alike with young Sergiu, but old Sergiu thinks he does, so he dubs him with his 78 years old voice, neglecting to synchronize his speech with the young Czech actor's lips movement - and the result is delirious.

One should also add the intolerably messy way to shoot on location (the famous Majestic square in downtown Bucharest trying to pass for western place - get a life!), the hallucinant host of anachronisms, the unwilling funny effects of so many scenes purporting to be "dramatic"...! My favorite blunder was the episode when young Moldovan chases after a bad guy, DELIBERATELY SHOOTING ALL HIS BULLETS IN THE AIR, and in the end he points the gun to the bastard, hears the unavoidable "click!", and remarks: "You were lucky, this time!" (I mean, there is dumb and dumb, but this beats them all!)
