This short film by Romanian author Catalin Mitulescu won "Palme d'or" in 2004
7 August 2014 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

One would agree if it is stated that everybody has a reason for liking or disliking a work of art.This is the same feeling a viewer would get while watching Romanian short film "Trafic".There are chances that many viewers might dislike it despite the fact that it won prestigious "palme d'or" for the best short film during Cannes International Film Festival 2004.It is quite possible that one would blame its lack of action and slow speed for not liking it.A film is also capable of eliciting surprises for everybody.This is the reason why there is also a possibility of brave viewers liking this film but a lot would depend on how viewers have found about this film ? A casual viewer would not have very high expectations about a film which focuses on a man caught in a traffic jam. Serious viewers might be charmed by this film as it has already caught the fancy of Cannes jury which appreciated the manner in which issues related to child care,banal job and traffic jams are treated in a single film.Lastly,Trafic is worth a viewing as some amount of suspense is created despite all evident,unfulfilled hopes of a grandiose denouement.
