Romanian filmmaker Corneliu Porumboiu presents a police procedural of a very different order, praised by the Los Angeles Times as “a gently subversive intellectual exercise.” Cristi (Dragos Bucur), a police detective in a minor village, is assigned to investigate a high-school student for drug violations. However, after his conscience prompts Cristi to question his duties, his icy superior officer (Vlad Ivanov) decides it’s time to teach the young detective a political lesson in semantics. “Meticulous and just about flawless” – Chicago Tribune.
