From renowned director Corneliu Porumboiu (POLICE, ADJECTIVE; THE TREASURE), comes a contemplative and characteristically dry-humored tale of a narcissistic director on the edge. With two weeks left before wrapping on his latest project, Paul is falling apart, complaining about his supposed "ulcer" and insisting that an actress with a small role in the film (with whom he has been romantically engaged throughout shooting) do a nude scene. When the subject isn't the immediate film shoot, characters are inclined to discourse on and debate various historical and philosophical ideas.
"Romanian cinema in its purest form." – Eric Kohn, Indiewire.
