Editorial Reviews

Product Description

During the summary trial that he and his wife were submitted to, Nicolae Ceausescu is reviewing his long reign in power: 1965-1989. From a formal point of view, The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu proves that it is possible to only use existing images to yield films focused on recent history, yet with an epic vein similar to that of the historical fiction cinema. This is an eminently syntactic endeavor, where montage plays a twofold part: mise-en-scene, as it builds scenes that do not exist as such in the rushes, and classical editing, connecting scenes together. In Romanian with English subtitles

This is the best documentary movie about "Ceausescu era" I've ever seen. I lived 21 years of that period and I can promise you that the movie reflects very accurate what I witnessed

the idea is so original. The editing is masterful! Poor Nicolae is hung on his own Petard. The lady was a horror.
