Synopsis
The final 15 years of the Ceausescu regime were the worst in Romania's history. Nonetheless, the propaganda machine of that time referred without fail to that period as "The Golden Age." The film adapts for the screen the most popular urban myths of the period. Comic, bizarre, surprising myths abounded, myths that drew on the often surreal events of everyday life under the communist regime. Humor is what kept Romanians alive, and "Tales From The Golden Age aims to re- capture that mood, portraying the survival of a nation having to face every day the twisted logic of a dictatorship.
