Synopsis

Paul Hanganu loves two women. Adriana his wife and the mother of their daughter, the woman with whom he’s shared the thrills of the past ten years, and Raluca the woman who has made him redefine himself. He has to leave one of them before Christmas.

Our take

Radu Muntean made one of the most pointed dramas of the Romanian New Wave with this Cannes Un Certain Regard highlight. Featuring the acute long takes and unaffected realism so highly praised in that movement, Muntean’s slowly evolving and devolving scenes of a relationship are subdued and true.

Critics reviews

Composed entirely of sequence-shots that enhance the naturalness of the performances, Muntean’s camera always searches for the right distance from which to tell its story. Setting aside any moral judgement, Tuesday, After Christmas succeeds in exploring the range of emotions and reactions experienced within this love triangle, and ends magnificently well: punctuating the immediate relief with a note of uncertainty that leaves us wondering about the future.
