Forget dissidents, RFE and Voice of America. Communism in Romania was defeated by Pretty Woman, Rambo, Don Corleone and – Chuck Norris. Even they couldn’t have toppled the dictator Ceausescu without Irina Nistor, a translator working in secret who dubbed all their voices. In the most closed country in Eastern Europe, anything Western was restricted. Nevertheless, or actually because of this, videotapes of American films started to be secretly distributed in the 1980s. A tiny pebble caused an unstoppable avalanche. Everyone wanted a taste of the forbidden fruit, from labourers and members of the secret police to the dictator’s son. This award-winning non-traditional doc presents the common experience of a whole generation and the desire for freedom.
