It’s a chilling reminder of the grimness of life in Ceausescu’s Romania that this delightfully silly fairy-tale spoof was banned until after the dictator’s fall. To be sure, the secret weapon invented by the film’s tyrannical emperor—likelier to wreak havoc on his subjects than on any enemies—smacks a bit of Ceausescu’s cruelly wrong-headed scheme for paying off his nation’s foreign debt. And some of the emperor’s ringing declarations—”I’ll destroy all the museums and libraries; that’s what it means to be the strongest in the world!”—would doubtless have elicted smiles of bitter familiarity among Romanian filmgoers in 1988.
