Movie Info

"After all, a dictator is simply an artist who is able to fully put into practice his egotism. It is a mere question of aesthetic level, whether he turns out to be Baudelaire or Bolintineanu, Louis XVI or Nicolae Ceausescu." Andrei Ujica During the summary trial that he and his wife were submitted to, Nicolae Ceausescu is reviewing his long reign in power: 1965-1989. It is an historical tableau that in its scope resembles American film frescos such as those dedicated to the Vietnam War. -- (C)

The impression Autobiography gives is of the banality of malice, buried within staged celebrations and dry bureaucratic business.

The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceauşescu is all about created perception, and Ujică brilliantly manages to craft a film that is not just about a real character, but a formal reflection of its subject.

A powerful indictment of politically manipulated media.

This depiction of a dictator's life is one very long, intermittently rewarding haul.

The conviction that this is a documentary that needed to be made and presented just so is ultimately quite persuasive.

It's an immersive, deliberately myopic portrait.
