Our take

The surprise winner of the Berlin International Film Festival’s top prize, the prestigious Golden Bear, this Romanian film is a dark skewering of the Romanian upper crust little seen in most Romanian New Wave films. A knock-out performance by Luminita Gherghiu guides this criminal family saga.
