4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days belongs to a larger project called: Tales from the Golden Age - a subjective history of communism in Romania told through its urban legends.

The friendship between two girls is tested to its absolute limits in this utterly compelling drama set in the twilight years of Communist-era Romania. Gabita (Laura Vasiliu), young and naïve, is pregnant. She turns to her more pragmatic room mate Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) for help and a meeting is arranged in a downtown hotel with the shady Mr Bebe (Vlad Ivanov). Entering a dangerous and illegal underworld where the stakes are high and nothing is as it seems, the girls are set for a life-changing experience that neither will ever forget.

Brilliantly observed, superbly performed and directed with quite astonishing flair, this tense, poignant and provocative film has been hailed as a modern masterpiece.

 This could've been a much better film...

| | 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.

Have wanted to watch this Romanian film for a while now, based on the stunning reviews it got.
To be honest I was expecting a bit more to be going on having watched a range of Brilliant Foreign films this Year.
Including Pans Labyrinth, The Lives of Others, Tell No One and Hidden. So I'm not averse to watching something, Challenging, Different and Subtitled.
The best way to describe this movie would be to say it was similar to the Kitchen Sink dramas from the UK film industry.
Where the Plot is very straight forward and predictable, but you become engaged due to the compelling Characters, Acting and Natural Dialogue.
The pacing of the film IS slow, and is for the most part compelling, but it could have done with a little trimming on some of the scenes as they do linger longer than necessary at times.
The Three main players Gabita, the girl that needs the Abortion, Otilia, who plays Gabita's friend and Mr Bebe all deliver Stunning natural performances.
Especially Otilia, who is the centre of the whole thing, and also the Uncompromising and Ruthless Mr Bebe.
So anyway a good movie, not Great, but defo wroth catching.
A bit disappointing compared to the other World Cinema I have seen this year.

 A Masterpiece

| | See all beller12's reviews (3)

This film was astonishing. An uneasy watch that was yet truly compelling. The acting is superb and the direction absolutely first class. Here we have the shaky hand held cameras of the Dogme95 style, with the slice of life storyline of a Mike Leigh film and the long uncomfortable scenes fitting of Michael Haneke at his best all rolled into one. Cristian Mungiu is certainly a director that I will watch out for.
The plot is straightforward enough, however, as in real life some thing's never go the way as planned and doesn't Mingui take real advantage of that.
Whilst I realise that this type of film does have a limited audience (largely because of those that won't bother with subtitles) I'd strongly recommend this film, only if to make others aware of how Romania was only twenty years ago.

 Bleak yet gripping

| | See all digitalmaverick's reviews (10)

As stated elsewhere in a review some of the scenes drag on to the point where you are screaming at the telly for the director to move on (the dinner party scene for example) but due to the claustrophobic nature of the piece one can't help but feel the terror the female lead is suffering at tat point and the dragging out of the scene serves to reinfroce this. I spotted many points were I had different outcomes planned - I think this would have been a cool film to have been done like Run Lola Run (with multiple endings). In the end its a film that transfixed and was more about my mind working overtime as to what was going to happen, than what ACTUALLY took place. It takes no prisoners and you'll either be left awestruck or dissatisfied - I am glad to say the former applied to me.

 Foreign Films Are The Way To Go

I'm loving getting into all these foriegn films at the moment. This one got some good ratings and I went ahead and bought and I'm glad I've seen it. Some great performances from the main characters and there's some fine, fine camera work shown off.

Some scenes dragged on a bit too long, that's probably why I've given it 4 stars. It wasn't fantastic but still had an effect on me and the story itself was just beautifully portrayed.

You should certainly see this movie then move on to so other decent foreign movies floating about.
