Portrait of the Fighter as a Young Man (Romanian: Portretul luptătorului la tinereţe) is a 2010 Romanian drama film directed by Constantin Popescu Jr. It was released at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival.
The film is the first part of a trilogy which describes the fight of anticommunist resistance of Romanians in the 50s. This first movie is centered on the figure of Ion Gavrilă Ogoranu, a member of the fascist and anti-Semitic Iron Guard, played by Constantin Diţă.
Due to its implied antisemitic nature, the film has raised protest from the Elie Wiesel National Institute for Studying the Holocaust in Romania.
In April 2010, the movie received the Public Award and the Image Award (Liviu Marghidan) at B-EST Film Festival in Bucharest.
The film was released in Romania on 18 November 2010.
