Romania 2007 // Director: Cristian Mungiu // 113 min // 35mm

Buy tickets for 4 Months 3 Weeks & 2 Days.

There are too many awards and accolades to list for the most acclaimed foreign film of 2007, but it began with the Cannes Palme d'Or and continued through year-end top-ten lists. Cristian Mungiu's intensely gripping and immaculately shot story of the procurement of an illegal abortion in communist-era Romania deserves to be seen on the widescreen if you missed it at last year's VIFF.
"Harrowing and brilliantly acted... Generates almost unbearable suspense."—The New York Times
