Awarded the Palme d'Or at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, Cristian Mungiu's powerful drama about personal choices and political repression during the late Ceaușescu regime put the nascent new wave of Romanian filmmaking on the world map. With her friend Găbița (Laura Vasiliu) desperately in need of an abortion, strictly illegal at the time, Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) must navigate a shadowy underworld of black market deal-making, brokered by the intimidating Mr. Bebe (Vlad Ivanov).
