Eliza has been convinced by her father Romeo she must leave Romania to study and live abroad. On the eve of her final exams an assault leaves her badly shaken, jeopardising the chance of a vital Cambridge scholarship. To ensure her success Romeo resorts to underhand measures with dramatic consequences. Best Director Cannes 2016.
"It's consistently absorbing and well acted, and Mungiu's camera makes even simple police interrogations or drive-around sequences unassuming things of beauty." Chicago Tribune
