Acclaimed filmmaker Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days) returns with ROMEO ALDEA (49), a physician living in a small mountain town in Transylvania, has raised his daughter Eliza with the idea that once she turns 18, she will leave to study and live abroad. His plan is close to succeeding – Eliza has got a scholarship to study psychology in UK. She just has to pass her final exams – a formality for such a good student. On the day prior to her first written exam, an incident jeopardizes Eliza’s departure. Now Romeo has to make a decision. There are ways of solving the problem, but none of them using the principles he, as a father, has taught his daughter.
It’s a film full of complex psychology, anxieties through body language and facial expressions and concern about a father with his young and beautiful daughter who has to face many obstacles in life. This film is deeply honest with corruption in some schools in Europe. Definitely two thumbs up for this film.
