This grandiose epic film recounts World War II and post-war exploits from the official biography of the man who ruled Rumania for many years, Nicolai Ceausescu. As Ceausescu was at the height of his power over the country at the time this film was made, this is a very, very careful film. Nonetheless, questions of propaganda and historical accuracy aside, the film's dramatizations of Ceausescu's adventures as an anti-Nazi partisan, his early power struggles and the principles he sets forth for the administration of government are interesting in themselves.
