Here’s a another striking spy poster for the Romanian spy thriller Maiorui si moartea (The Major and Death) click on image for larger view. Of course, I have never seen the film, and can find out little about it beyond in director and cast. The imagery used would suggest that it is a Romanian take on James Bond – the gun barrel motif is quite blatant – but that could be deceptive marketing too.

See the original (and many other great spy posters) at Terry Posters.

The director, Alexandru Boiangu appeared to specialise in documentary and short film subjects, so I would guess that the film is a rather sparse affair – but none-the-less, it would be fascinating to watch this spy thriller from the other side of the Iron Curtain made at the peak of the Cold War.
