Some three hours long and shot almost entirely in a packed and cluttered Bucharest flat, this latest film from talented filmmaker Cristi Puiu (THE DEATH OF MR LAZARESCU and AURORA) is a wonderfully absorbing film. It weaves its way through a family reunion that offers a thoughtful insight into the modern-day Romanian middle-class, as Puiu observes tensions and misunderstandings as a family come together at a memorial dinner. The encounters between the family members veer between dramatic to gently amusing, with Puiu allowing the differing characters to emerge as fully-rounded and appropriately complex people.
