Isn't it about time you saw a Romanian movie?
Dir. Corneliu Porumboiu / 2009 / Romania / 113min / 35mm
WINNER - Jury Prize, Un Certain Regard - 2009 Cannes Film Festival
One of the most critically-acclaimed films of the year and a double prize winner at Cannes, POLICE, ADJECTIVE is the new whip-smart, dryly funny comedy from Corneliu Porumboiu (12:08 EAST OF BUCHAREST). The film is Romania?s official entry to the 2009 Academy Awards. Cristi (Dragos Bucur) is a young undercover cop who undergoes a crisis of conscience when he is pressured to arrest a teenager who offers hash to classmates. Not wanting to ruin the life of a young man he considers merely irresponsible, Cristi must either allow the arrest tobe a burden on his conscience, or face censure by his self-serious superior (Vlad Ivanov of 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS), for whom the word ?conscience? has an entirely different meaning. Porumboiu approaches his story with the exacting patience of a master ironist, culminating in one of the most unexpected comedic payoffs in years, ? an extraordinary dissection of language that affirms his reputation as one of the most exciting new talents in European cinema.
