Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania: Police, Adjective


police cropped

 

A young cop assigned to trail a schoolboy suspected of using drugs spends long hours in surveillance and longer nights writing reports. The officer questions the morality and even necessity of his situation and, soon, his own police terminology starts to sound ambiguous. The film ends in a brilliantly orchestrated argument about the precise meanings of words. “Made by one who grew up in a police state and watched it fall apart” — J. Hoberman. Awarded the Un Certain Regard jury prize and the Critics’ Prize at the 2009 Festival de Cannes. (Corneliu Porumboiu, 2009, subtitles, 115 minutes)

 

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