Amintiri Din Epoca de Aur: Tales From the Golden Age: Romanian Urban Myths of the '80s

Loading...
"The final fifteen years of the Ceausescu regime were the worst in Romania's history. Nonetheless, the propaganda machine of that time relentlessly referred to that period as the country's 'golden age'. Using the moniker as a starting point, Tales from the Golden Age spins the most popular, comic and bizarre urban legends from that harrowing period into a hilariously surreal omnibus film."--Container.
