A Bomb Was Stolen (1961)

S-a furat o bombă (1961)

79 min. - Comedy - AG - 23.01.1962


A dialogue free Romanian science-fiction spy-comedy that draws upon farce, satire and surrealism as it subversively deconstructs the spy thriller with the protagonist's accidental discovery of a nuclear suitcase bomb and the subsequent fight over ownership between the rival powers of the criminals and the military.
