Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: The Treasure

At first glance, this contemporary fable appears to have a simple premise: several coworkers in Bucharest, convinced they will locate a buried box of money left behind during the war, set out with a metal detector to undertake the hunt on an old family property. What develops is neither simple nor predictable, and this fable is infused with many eloquent observations. It is the closing twist, however, that marks The Treasure (Comoara) as a timeless classic. (Corneliu Porumboiu, 2015, 90 minutes)

This program is in conjunction with the National Gallery of Art.
