Watch Tales from the Golden Age
- 2 hr 18 min
This film is centered around five internal episodic stories. The stories are entitled The Legend of the Official Visit, The Legend of the Party Photographer, The Legend of the Chicken Driver, The Legend of the Greedy Policeman and The Legend of the Air Sellers. The atmosphere of the stories are derived from urban myths about images of life during the time of communist rule in Romania. Somewhat dark in their appeal, the second of the two episodes centers specifically around a comical photograph of Nicolae Ceaușescu, that ends up being printed in the newspaper. However, after the photograph's release, it becomes evident that the Romanian leader is wearing and carrying a hat at the same time, which was an unfortunate oversight by the printing staff.
