Focused around the August 23rd 1944 coup against Marshal Antonescu, the movie also tackles other topics from the same era such as the Iron Guard rebellion and the execution of political leaders by communists.

Nicolaescu made abysmally bad movies. Oglinda howeer is somehow better. Coposu was consulted for this movie. In general, the judgement of the characters is slightly neutral, with a dose of nationalism and admiration for Antonescu. It is peculiar how Hitler is shown as a calm,monotone partner of conversation rather than the flamboyant one that is usually depicted.
