A respected doctor returns to Romania after the overthrow of the dictator Ceausescu. But he is deeply disillusioned by endemic corruption. Perhaps his daughter can have a better life: success in an exam will win her a place at Cambridge University. Success becomes unlikely when the girl is attacked so he decides to pull a few strings—the first in a series of moral compromises. One reviewer notes, ‘there are few obvious villains . . . just people who have trouble looking at themselves in the mirror’. A tense, multi-faceted and naturalistic film for which Cristian Mungiu won Best Director at Cannes. This exposé of problems in a post-communist country has a wider relevance—a culture of secret deals and personal connections can undermine any society.
