“Cristian Mungiu has delivered a brilliant, scary portrayal of irrationality and fear in Europe’s dark heart.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“... confirms Mungiu as a maturing talent with more universal stories to tell than those defined by Romania’s recent political past.”
Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
