The words of the title were spoken by soldier-turned-prime minister Ion Antonescu, whose virulent anti-Semitism fuelled the ethnic cleansing of the 1941 Odessa Massacre. In Radu Jude’s film, a young woman researching and rehearsing a pageant about the Romanian army’s ‘victory’ in capturing Odessa repeatedly encounters obstacles and objections, both from the authorities (who would prefer a sanitised official story) and from locals hired as extras, who have their own ideas about heroes and villains. Typically rigorous, witty and cineliterate in examining the uncomfortable relationship between past and present, Jude’s exhilaratingly freewheeling narrative channels both early Godard and Jancsó. Strong stuff.
