User Review

Probably best Romanian movie

Rating: 10/10


This is a movie from the highest rated young Romanian director who won
highest appreciation from the Cannes festival (Golden Palm) in 2007.
It's a movie that will make you feel like a human being again and after
seeing it you will surely think much better about Romanian
cinematography. The movie is a drama of a human being that is oppressed
by the communist regime in Romania, one of the most criminal regimes of
this century.In the last years of the Romanian communism, the
dictator's wife "Elena Ceausescu" made it clear for everyone that
abortion is no longer permitted and that had a lot of implications
later on. Although the movie is not about the regime itself but about
the character and her personal drama. 4 Months 3 Weeks & 2 Days is
supposedly the beginning of a series of films Mungiu is hoping to make
called The Golden Age, each about life in Communist Romania. I hope
he's successful; if this film is an example of the kind of rough-hew
humanity and blunt realism we can expect in future films, I'd
definitely seek them out. As it is, 4 Months 3 Weeks & 2 Days moved me
and challenged me, made me feel and made me think, demonstrated the
personal and political challenges of a heartbreaking choice that, in
many ways, is no choice at all– and that's a rare enough achievement,
and one worthy of seeking out.This movie is a work of art
