A first of view on the armed resistance in communist Romania at the beginning on the 50s, shot after the fall of the regime in 1989. Quite a pair with PORTRAIT OF THE FIGHTER AS A YOUNG MAN, shot 20 years later. Half Screwball, half history Film, Half family Saga, half political thriller, this film is quite eclectic and stilistically still a reminiscence of the Golden era.
