Trailer for Tales from the Golden Age, which screened at the 2009 Vancouver International Film Festival.
he final 15 years of the Ceausescu regime may have been the worst in Romania's history. Nonetheless, the propaganda machine referred without fail to that period as "the golden age." Written by Cristian Mungiu, this witty film provides an unconventional, subjective and undoubtedly therapeutic history of late communist times in Romania, told through its urban myths from the perspective of ordinary people. Humor is what evidently kept Romanians alive, and Tales from the Golden Age portrays the survival of a nation faced daily with twisted logic and too few eggs.
