4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days A tale from
the golden age

Young Romanian filmmaker Cristian Mungiu skilfully spins a quiet story from the communist-era, lacing the narrative with wit, horror and irony. Despite an offbeat setting and a touchy central theme (abortion), the film is a jolt of real life that's utterly riveting and often powerfully moving as we follow two university-age women on an often harrowing odyssey. It's sheer moviemaking genius, essentially inventing a new cinematic language - a bold step onto the world stage for the gifted Mungiu, who's planning a series of stories set in this period.
