Reviews

“This stark black-and-white documentary reflects eyewitness experiences of the 1989 demonstrations in Timisoara, western Romania: the seed that grew into a bloody rebellion and overthrew the hated Ceausescu regime. Translucently beautiful, the film looks as if it were shot with an X-ray machine, a simile which is echoed in the grueling testimonies of people betrayed and exposed by their own revolution.”
– 1995 Human Rights Watch Film Festival
