  1. bucharestaesthetics's rating of the film Aferim!

  2. mootz15's rating of the film Aferim!

    Flawed but ultimately convincing, heartfelt and yes, even funny. More than that however, a real rarity given the subject matter - the enslavement of the Roma people in the Romanian principalities (only abolished in the mid 19th century) - and all the more valuable for it (at least in Romania). The hideous Communist-era "historical epics" and their legacy can only finally be swept aside by films such as this.

    I appreciate the intention but not the result

  9. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. goulton green's rating of the film Aferim!

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

  17. remora's rating of the film Aferim!

    Și câți eram morți ne socoteam vii și umblam amețiți.

  18. 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").

  19. 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)

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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!

  24. Brady's rating of the film Aferim!

    I was privileged to see this film at my local towns festival with the presence of a collaborator and actor Radu Jude has worked with before. This isn't a perfect movie but its something that has a crisp vision behind it that is undeniable.
