TERTIUM NON DATUR

by Lucian Pintilie

synopsis

The Ukrainian steppe, toward the end of World War II. The German and Romanian troops are retreating in the face of the unstoppable Red Army. In a deserted school, a Romanian military unit has set up its headquarters. It is a desolate place, with broken windows and straw on the ground; it looks more like a stable. In front of maps become useless, the Romanian officers are awaiting disaster. A visit of high-ranking Wehrmacht officers is suddenly announced. Hope is awakened: will they receive new orders? Will they counter-attack?
