An anthology of six short films, retelling urban legends from the late communist era in Romania. A period that the communist propaganda at the time referred to as the Golden Age.
Tales from the Golden Age is a group effort assembled by Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days). While much of the detail will be missed by those of us who did not live behind the Iron Curtain, they paint a picture of what that life may have been like. Subjects and stories that may be funny today but were serious and common situations during that time.
