    In the story, a boy, a woman and a cow seem to be the only survivors of a global catastrophe, except for whoever is following them threateningly in a tank. Slowly they put together what they need to survive, and despite the difficulty of all this, it looks as though the human race may just manage a new beginning.

Eventually, they realize that the journalist’s beauty is the reason for the brain’s odd behavior. She has become its muse.

    The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu (2010)

    The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu starts with the familiar, grainy and juddering shoulder-held images of Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife Elena just before their execution. What follows is beautiful archival footage of state visits, party congresses, visits to crowded stores. In the course of the film – the subdued and radical masterpiece lasts more than three hours – the manifestations show increasing signs of megalomania; people sing and clap for Ceausescu, his name is chanted during endless parades. There are beautiful colour shots of Ceausescu joining in a volleyball match. He stands by the net and with one hand he keeps pulling it down a little to try and get the ball over with his other hand. No one dares to say a word.Read More »
