Constantin Dolinescu a Romanian writer (1936-? AD) born in Craiova. Author of such novels as l'Invention Crusoe, l'Emprise (The Grip) and La Ride (The Wrinkle), he was persecuted for his opinions in his native country and moved to France in 1987. He wrote the scenario for the movies Négatif (Negative) and La Ride, which are perhaps two different titles for the same work. He disappeared from public sight in 1993, and is the central element of Virgil Iancu's movie; Le Dernier Plan. He has been somehow connected with an actor named Mihai Dinvale.
