Mungiu’s gripping crime drama is a winner. A father in a post-Communist Romania engages in the small-town corrupt local network for the first time to ensure his daughter achieves the results she needs to give her access to life-changing opportunities. As the forces of corruption circle about him, will he be able to put the genie back in to the bottle. Another pitch perfect film from a master director, (4 months, 3 Weeks and 2 days, Outbound, Beyond the Hills), and an important addition to his filmography.
‘Dark and compelling…a film of enormous power and moral seriousness.’ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
