Storyline

Edit
Plot Summary

Romania, 1987, the brutal Ceausescu communist regime is in place; birth control is illegal and abortion is a crime punishable by death. Gabita (Laura Vasliu) is almost five months into an unwanted pregnancy and in meek desperation turns to her friend and roommate, Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) for help in organizing an illegal termination. Unfortunate circumstances force the two women to use an unwanted male abortionist, Bebe (Vlad Ivanov). The bleakness of the storyline expresses a dark socio-political critique in the twilight years of a repressive dictatorship. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Trivia The 2008 Oscar winner in the 'Best Foreign Language Film' category at the 80th Academy Awards was Austria's The Counterfeiters (2007), an entry much criticized as conventional and artistically inferior to Cristian Mungiu's Palme d'Or winner. The surprising snub of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007), which wasn't even nominated, resulted in intense scrutiny and ridicule of the Academy Awards by the international film community and eventually inspired reforms to the 'Best Foreign Language Film' selection process.
