THE AFTERNOON OF A TORTURER

by Lucian Pintilie

synopsis

Frant Tandara, a former torturer in the prisons of Communist Romania, has agreed to confess his crimes to a journalist and a former political prisoner. Right from the start, the confession is plagued with problems: the tape recorder jams, Tandara speaks too fast or too slowly, his story sounds contrived. The son of a soldier, he became a homeless drifter when World War II ended. He slept in train stations and lived a hobo existence. While evoking his shady past, Tandara never really comes clean.
