  4. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film One Floor Below

    A minuciously realist portrait of the suffocating impact of inaction and silence in the face of a moral crisis. Corban’s masterclass in economic expressiveness and almost imperceptible telegraphy of internal conflict is amazing, as is Muntean’s careful escalation of tension through the use of quiet mundane observation. Still, the screenplay is quite inconsequential and the characters are strangely under-realized.

  5. Trickstian Shantih's rating of the film One Floor Below

    Amorph in grey density; the mindfulness trap. And then - the Mother Night

  6. alice's rating of the film One Floor Below

    While in my opinion not his best work, i found the movie to be a true piece of real life story - the kind Romanian new wave cinema is so good at. The long scenes shot with the smallest detail allow the audience to get into the story, and try to get into the head of the main character. We are voyeurs and the tension is truly there, reminding of Hitchocock's "Rear window".

  7. Carl Penguin's rating of the film One Floor Below

    romanian movies are stupid and are executed without imagination.

  8. Soille.'s rating of the film One Floor Below

    I'm fed up with the New Romanian Wave. Couldn't we just get over it?

  9. Jason's rating of the film One Floor Below

    This is some crisp, slow-burn Geroges Simenon shit. Scrupulous. This lead: Teodor Corban. Total everyman, total gravitas. I love these Romanian films for the way they deal so bemusedly in bureaucracy, post-communist institutionality, and authority flouting. This will appeal to fans of Chabrol and Tavernier.

    Review published at Next Projection While the film may momentarily captivate or impress, it never truly feels complete. Read full review: http://nextprojection.com/2015/09/27/viff-one-floor-slow-burn-suspense/

  12. Ligia Prodan's rating of the film One Floor Below

    The color grading was stunning.

  13. Marcus Killerby's rating of the film One Floor Below

    Marketed as Romania's Rear Window, this is true only if Hitchcock had followed Jimmy Stewart around a Car Registration company through endless scene after endless scene and he had not so much witnessed a murder as heard about one and the killer not so much come after him as been passive agressive. Not entirely without interest but needs to be damned with the faintest of praise.

  14. Isaac Ionescu's rating of the film One Floor Below

    Bunuț, dar slab față de ce poate Muntean.

  15. Mihai Cristea's rating of the film One Floor Below

    7-8/10. I don't know, this one requires multiple viewings.
