The Afternoon of a Torturer – the Anatomy of an Impossible Case

justifyleft;”>The author begins with the theory of the three representations of the Communist past, visible in the post-communist narrative discourse, both in literature and cinema, already discussed in previous articles. The present article brings forward new insights regarding the second representation, still inspired by the anticommunist stance, but already surpassing its limitations towards other narrative options and perspectives. Lucian Pintilie’s film The Afternoon of a Torturer is considered a key example due to the controversial aspect of the character portrayed, due to the factual dimension of the case and its implicit ambiguities.

Keywords: typologies of representation, figure of the survivor, figure of the bystander, retroactive justice.
