This psychological drama centres on Cornelia (Luminita Gheorghiu), a 60-year-old nouveau riche architect who’s quite prepared to pervert the course of justice when her beloved adult offspring Barbu (Bogdan Dumitrache) kills an adolescent in a car accident.
The restlessness of the camerawork may drive you to distraction, but director/co-writer Calin Peter Netzer’s film is held steady by Gheorghiu’s staunch performance.
And it’s through the dysfunctional mother-son relationship at its core that a pointed critique of the corruption bedevilling Romanian society emerges.
