About the Closer to the Moon 💬

''During World War II, the anti-Nazi resistance in Romania was mainly organized by the Communist Party. A number of young Jews joined the cause, believing their freedom would come from the Soviet Union. The Red Army didn't free, but enslaved the country, along with the whole Eastern and Central Europe. An iron-first regime was installed. Former Jewish partisans became part of the governing elite. Their positions started to erode until, by the last years of the 50's, they were being systematically removed from positions of power and influence.''

  • Based on a true story.

A band of Romanian freedom fighters pulls the crime of the century in this heist film based on an incredible true story.

Communist Romania - Bucharest, 1959: Five high-ranking Jewish members of the Romanian Communist party and heroes of the WWII resistance plan and carry out a spectacular bank robbery. They divert the attention of onlookers by pretending to be shooting a movie. They are arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced to death but not before being forced to reenact the robbery in a fake propaganda film. An opportunity they immediately seize to turn their absurd predicament into a comedy.

''The propaganda reenactment made in 1960 on which this film is based still exists.''
