Tales from the Golden Age/Amintiri in Epoca de Aur

2009

DIRECTED BY

Hanno Höfer Razvan Marculescu Cristian Mungiu Constantin Popescu Ioana Uricaru

Tales from the Golden Age adapts for the screen some of the most popular urban myths of Romania’s communist past. These comic, bizarre and surprising stories drew on the often surreal events of everyday life under the communist regime. Humor is what kept Romanians alive though those dark times, and Tales from the Golden Age aims to re-capture that mood, portraying the survival of a nation that had to face the twisted logic of a dictatorship every day. Through a sequence of several true stories, this masterpiece captures an era when food was more important than money, freedom more important than love and survival more important than principles.
