DOGS - CÂINI (2016)
Special Features: Q&A with actor Gheorghe Visu
Bogdan Mirică won the FIPRESCI Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival for this intense drama that has been described as a Romanian NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. City boy Roman (Dragoș Bucur) inherits a large piece of undeveloped land from his grandfather. Beginning with the discovery on the property of a severed foot still in its shoe, and followed by various hints dropped by local police chief (Gheorghe Visu) and his grandfather's former employee (Vlad Ivanov), the criminal past of Roman's grandfather comes to light, and it has a fearsome, far-reaching influence that not even the grave can contain.
