  5. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Aferim!

    A buddy-western by way of Vlacil or German. I appreciated Jude actually setting a coherent story in the dirty, authentic medievil world he created. Those who call Clint's westerns nihilisitic clearly haven't seen the half of it.

  10. Sprungler's rating of the film Aferim!

    An amazing portrayal of a 19th century Romanian bounty hunter set to bring back an outcast gipsy slave to its rightful owner. The problem is though, that the two are on the same side, they are both working for the boier. Thus, the searcher is faced with a difficult decision, which will not end pleasant. A wonderfully executed journey film, with a bit of humor and maybe not enough hope for the future.

    No wonder we are as we are when coming from those as they were.

  13. remora's rating of the film Aferim!

    Și câți eram morți ne socoteam vii și umblam amețiți.

  14. redux's rating of the film Aferim!

    Fascinating period piece that addresses the East European present in a number of ways. Admirably consistent in tone with the best of Romanian filmmaking (Pintilie and the whole "new wave").

  15. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Aferim!

    Almost insultingly, Mr. Jude builds a hilarious satire that unreservedly mocks the human values, ethnicities, and the society itself. (4.5 stars)

  16. muh.'s rating of the film Aferim!

    aferim! is set somewhere between a road movie and a western fugitive movie but set to the, for most part, unknown backdrop of 19th century romania. unfortunately the exoticism of the unknown balkans is the most interesting thing about it. i could not help thinking of how old yugoslav comedies still seem fresher and better at subversive irony than this one.

  17. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Aferim!

    Bigotry, authority, religion, sex, and history in all their absurd glory, like a remake of Andrei Rublev as a deadpan comedy where even the gorgeous CinemaScope photography seems to be in on the joke—at least until it can't be funny anymore. A wonderful look at the self-deception endemic to any era. Winner of Best Director at Berlinale, and an arthouse highlight of whatever year it commercially opens in the States.

  18. Daniella's rating of the film Aferim!

    This is what happens when you have a great folk story to tell, a perfectly written script and flawless photography. One of the best films this year. The director saturates the screen with people, animals, scenery and action in a discombobulated array which turns the spectator into a voyeur always on the lookout for the main characters who tend to appear and disappear before your eyes within an orderly chaos. Aferim!

  20. JNRARO's rating of the film Aferim!

    with a great skill the director entertains us through xenophobic constable's remarks just so he can later pull the rug beneath us by making us an accomplice to a raw incident in the final act.

  21. Tudor Rachieru's rating of the film Aferim!

  22. Stephane Tanaka's rating of the film Aferim!

    4.5. One of the greatest film of 2015. Great photo, great writing, good humor and well dosed, deep reflexion

  23. Scotch's rating of the film Aferim!

    An important historical film about Roma slavery that doesn't rely on brutal violence to depict the true horrors of the institution and the ideologies that justified it.

  24. msmichel's rating of the film Aferim!

    FNC '15 For his third picture Jude takes us to 19th century Romania for this film about a lawman on a quest for a runaway slave applying his mix of scathing black comedy peppered with fair allusion to thoughts on class, race and tolerance. Script is aces full of strange anecdotes, sayings and hard to take at times racial diatribes. The b&w cinematography is striking taking advantage of the widescreen format.
