Mungiu, Cristian

4months 3 weeks and 2 days

"Cristian Mungiu's film is a nightmare of social-realist suspense, a 
jewel of what it is now considered the Romanian new wave, along with 
Cristi Puiu's The Death of Mr Lazarescu and Corneliu Porumboiu's 12:08 
East of Bucharest. In more general terms, it is part of that emerging 
21st-century phenomenon, ordeal cinema: a cinema that with great formal 
technique makes you live through a horrendous experience in what seems 
like real time. As a drama, it is superbly observed and telling in every
subtle detail; yet it is also simply as exciting, in its 
stomach-turning way, as any thriller."
