A young artist is planning to reconstruct a historical event from 1941, during which the Romanian Army carried out ethnic cleansing on the Eastern Front. One of contemporary Europe's most distinctive creators has come out with an ingeniously conceived film. While it unfolds slowly and in detail, it hits the viewer with a singular emotional punch.

Did You Know?


In the film Molina (Alexandru Dabija) presses Mariana (Ioana Iacob) on why she is focusing Antonescu and not Communism, implying political bias. In response, she states that the next project can be about Communism. Radu Jude's next project, Uppercase Print, focused on repression and surveillance under Romania's Communist regime. See more »

User Reviews

The most boring movie I have ever seen
31 March 2019 | by JustARandomGuy45See all my reviews

I saw many boring movies and I tolerated most of them and I have never put bad comments on them. But this is the most boring movie I have ever seen. Besides being boring it is also vulgar: many vulgar jokes and vulgar nudity scenes. Maybe this movie had a good idea, but it was implemented poorly.
