Romania (2010) Dir: Radu Mantean. The Romanian New Wave of the past decade has yielded many internationally acclaimed gems. Add to them this elegant, emotionally resonant drama of a middle-class couple whose marriage is rocked by the husband’s illicit affair with their daughter’s sexy dentist. In scorchingly intense long takes, the power dynamics among these three are unpredictable and, in the end, devastating. The fact that the two leads are actually a married couple adds to the verisimilitude.
Romanian with English subtitles. Not Rated. 99 mins.
Funding provided by Nashville Premieres.
