From award-winning director Cristian Mungiu (‘4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days’) comes a gripping, non-judgmental portrait of ethnic and economic resentments tearing at the fabric of a small mountain town.
After suffering racial abuse, Matthias (Marin Grigore) leaves his job in Germany to return to his small Romanian village, a place festering with outrage over the arrival of workers taking jobs most locals don’t want to do.
Matthias is not perfect: a married father, he is having an affair with Csilla (Judith Slate), who runs the bakery where newly-hired Sri Lankan employees work. Mungiu has put his hand on the pulse of a nation - and the globe. He doesn’t deal in heroes and villains; he is more interested in revealing how easily anyone can be both. It is one of the best, most passionate films of the year and leaves you with much to think about.
