  1. Loud Rocks's rating of the film Reconstruction

  2. bucharestaesthetics's rating of the film Reconstruction

    Flawless example of Romanian cinema and its golden age. The humor of absurdity is exploited with the help of politics and the excessive, non-sensical authority in Romania’s communist period. Amazing performances from Mihaita and Gaitan, impressive cinematography for 1960’s Romania and heavily featured French influences in the character development and appereance (Ileana Popovici reminisces feminine Godard characters)

  3. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Reconstruction

  4. dionysus67's rating of the film Reconstruction

    Another ingenious subversion of authoritarian politics told via pristine cinematography and a tragicomic tone, perfectly suited to the bizarre institutional rituals in question. A government-ordered filmic reconstruction about the evils of alcoholism gives rise, beyond the critique of the regime, to a cinematic manifesto with subtle cuts, brisk movement to and from the lens and plenty of resonant aural tropes.

  5. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film Reconstruction

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film Reconstruction

    Efficace et grinçante dénonciation de l'omnipotence de l'Etat à travers la stupidité et la veulerie de ses moult représentants fièrement assermentés... www.cinefiches.com

  7. saitosouta's rating of the film Reconstruction

    Marion “T*e D**k K****t R***s” Cotillard should see this George Mihăiță’s work.

  8. josé neves's rating of the film Reconstruction

    Blu-ray projection. Romanian free form, under censorship's subjection, that inexplicably passed unharmed for some time until it was withdrawn from circulation - which could be explained by the mediocrity underlying all totalitarian regimes. A well-disposed creation about a possibility of existence that is simultaneously a resilience of human capacities and artistic forms. Therefore, a breath that still is.

  9. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Reconstruction

    Compliance is a collective muddy sog.

  10. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Reconstruction

    final scene was good, but before this scene vuica's death was pretended and not effective.

  11. Minu's rating of the film Reconstruction

  12. sharunasbresson's rating of the film Reconstruction

  14. Vlad's rating of the film Reconstruction

  15. Risselada's rating of the film Reconstruction

  16. House 0f Leaves's rating of the film Reconstruction

    There are too many films with this title. That being said, this is incredible. There is so much truth in this film, whether it's commenting on Romania, society at large, or film itself. As sad as it is hilarious.
