Winner of the top prize at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival, this riveting psychological thriller is the latest in a string of great dramas coming from Romania. In one of the best performances you’ll see at the festival, Luminita Gheorghiu stars as Cornelia, a well-to-do retired architect in Bucharest with a fanatical devotion to her only child, thirty-something Barbu. When Barbu runs over and kills a teenage boy in the suburbs, Cornelia will stop at nothing to save her “poor boy” from any jail time—even if it means bribing witnesses, turning in false police reports, and pressuring the victim’s family. Director Calin Peter Netzer offers razor-sharp social satire in this brilliantly-wrought film, a spellbinding drama about class, family, and obsession.
