4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007) Poster

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.

One of actor/director James Franco's five favorite films: "Again, a very simple approach, but there's so much power in that film. You're not quite sure what's happening from the beginning, but you're just kind of thrown into it. All you know is that these women have this mysterious meeting, and it takes you from there. The film gives you a great sense of what it was really like to live in Romania in the 1980s."[2009]
