Slow-burning but satisfying Romanian anti-drama

Slow-burning but satisfying, this Romanian anti-drama sees a cop refusing to arrest a student for spliffing up, only to fall foul of his superiors. Not much else happens, but bone-dry wit and a sly satire of legalese jargon add depth and flavour, notably in a deliciously deadpan mockclimax conducted over a dictionary.
