Tuesday After Christmas

A man must choose between wife and lover over the Yuletide period

An unseasonal release for this slice of festive feelbad from Romania, in which Paul (Mimi Branescu) must choose between wife Adriana (Mirela Oprisor) and young lover Raluca (Maria Popistasu) over the Yuletide period.

Director Radu Muntean’s film bears all of the hallmarks of the Romanian New Wave – bracing emotional candour, superb performances, virtuoso long takes. Yet without any wider point to make beyond “life is complicated,” the oblique, observational style often feels indulgent.
