‘An intricate, deeply intelligent film.’
Winner, Best Director (Cristian Mungiu) – Cannes Film Festival
Nominated, Best Film – Cannes Film Festival
A good father in a moral maze.
What wouldn’t we do for our kids? Determined to help his brilliant 18-year-old daughter Eliza pass her university entrance exam, respectable doctor Romeo begins to call in favours from friends with influence. One good turn leads to another and before long Romeo is drawn into a circle of favours – the very thing he has spent his life teaching Eliza to avoid. This joint-winner (with Personal Shopper) of the Best Director award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival is a gripping, serious tale by one of Europe’s most brilliant and morally engaged storytellers.
