We do not enjoy walks down the dark memory lanes of our history, but art will not let us forget. The conjured portraits of torturers, informants, corrupt politicians, cowardly intellectuals, Bovaresque and deceitful women confront us with the shadows and weaknesses of the human soul, allowing for few rays of light and hope. The characters in Marin Preda's famous novel spin out on stage into a vortex of consciences fighting for survival. Some walk the path of compromise; others shut their eyes tight and refuse to make judgements; while some step on dead bodies, others crawl through prison cells, rejecting a reality that is utterly unacceptable from a human point of view. Should we live the lie in order to be happy, yet morally crippled, or to break the circles of external and internal imprisonment through the ultimate act of liberation? The most beloved of earthlings does not have a choice.
