3 This could've been a much better film...MorrisMitchener | 16/05/2008 | See all MorrisMitchener's reviews (10)...that's not to say it's not worth seeing though.It is.But really someone needs to introduce director Cristian Mungiu to the concepts of pacing and editing. Scenes drag on for ages to little effect other than to bore the viewer (The dreadful dinner party scene...God, I think I grew a beard waiting for it end...). Defenders of the film will say that This Is The Whole Point, that it's Stark, Uncompromising etc.Well maybe. But it's also boring. Theres a good story here and the acting is exemplary. But it could have been much more accessible and that really isn't such a bad thing.
