Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Stuff and Dough


stuff and dough cropped

 

Cristi Puiu's (THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU, SIERANEVADA) debut feature is a delightfully deadpan road movie that inaugurated the Romanian New Wave. When twenty-something slacker Ovidiu (Alexandru Papadopol) decides to launch a snack-selling business, he takes a dubious transporter job from a local crime boss in order to earn startup cash. Hitting the road with his girlfriend (Ioana Flora) and best friend (Dragos Bucur), Ovidiu has no idea what he's gotten into. Puiu's darkly funny take on the American road movie is both low-key buddy comedy and a sharp critique of life in Romania at the dawn of the 21st century.
