Sieranevada Regizat de Cristi Puiu
Arguably the best film of 2016, and a massive success for the Romanian auteur. This mix of social critique, absurdist comedy, Ionescoian/Beckettian impulses and idle conversation, all set inside the ominous walls of a 50-square-metre apartment, is both a superb undertaking of synchronicity and performance and an impeccable combination of mise en scène and script.

A kind of miraculous intimate family epic, constructed like a farce, but with the emotional resonance of Shakespearean comic tragedy; we circulate through rooms in a large apartment where a family is always about to celebrate a memorial service. Everything is happening at once, in every register available in post-Socialist Romania (political, emotional, sexual, social …).

If I had to choose a single favorite from the films I’ve seen so far at the festival, it would be a hard choice between Sieranevada and A Quiet Passion. I have to say, though, that Sieranevada is much funnier, though it took me longer than it should have to figure out that it’s a comedy. Watching the lengthy opening shot, which largely involves the main character’s car being double parked and blocking a DHL truck, I did quickly realize that I was seeing a terrific film.

    eram odata in lidl la coada si un domn din spatele meu il intreaba pe alt domn "sunteti la coada?" si domnul ii raspunde: "da, de ce credeti ca stau aici?!" si s-a ambalat puntin. apoi domnul care a pus primul intrebarea ii zice: "nu stiu, dom'le, ma gandeam ca poate va asteptati nevasta" si apoi au inceput sa se certe. cam asa am simtit si eu filmul asta.

    Românii moştenesc din tată-n fiu o resemnare mută care se schimbă în apatie şi această apatie este susţinută încă de neştiinţa lor; de unde moleşirea voinţei și alterarea caracterului. Fiind dintotdeauna dotaţi cu o inteligenţă superioară, dar ţinută în loc, paralizată de o trândăvie impusă de împrejurările nefericite ale istoriei, au criticat pe oamenii lor, fără să fi făcut sforţări în a îndrepta ceea ce criticau.

  • josé neves's rating of the film Sieranevada

    PC. If Jude made a magnum opus about the theatricality of human comedy, Puiu sublimated it under a continuous stream of play between the actors and the camera, in permanent sequence-shots, where realism is subjected to an inexorable corrosion. Faced with the dementia of this group, appears in splendor the ways of a comedy that finds in Buñuel's "El Ángel Exterminador" its matrix: before humanity we can only laugh.

  • Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Sieranevada

    An enormous achievement in storytelling and technicality. Puiu deserves a fucking prize for having been able to cram so much characters, subplots, themes and conversations in one space. This film is nearly 3 hours long and it needs to be. This would make an amazing VR film viewing experience. Some of the most needed and contagious laughing I've seen in a film. This film is why I go to the movies. 4.5 stars.

    Cristi Puiu's latest is a universal tale of family gathering; this one for a ceremony for the family patriarch. Brilliantly scripted touching on wounds both fresh and ancient throughout as the extended family interact in the most genuine and exacting of ways. Basically taking place in real time the three hour runtime never wears out its welcome and we're left to marvel at the claustrophobic shooting structure.

  • Jason's rating of the film Sieranevada

    A huge hunk of movie, mammoth running time being a minor factor as such. A lot of people in, for the most part, a very tight space. (How in the hell are there a crew and equipment in there?) A lot being encapsulated (both nation-specific and extra-national). I often tend to separate the cinema that goes out to do art from the cinema that sets out to entertain. Sieranevada is actually all-you-can-eat entertainment.

  • Claudia Negrea's rating of the film Sieranevada

    it's frustrating that between Mungiu and Puiu, Mungiu wins best director at Cannes for Bacalaureat. I haven't seen the other nominated films, but Sieranevada is truly a directorial masterpiece. This proves once again how the festival systems really work.

  • Genadijus L.'s rating of the film Sieranevada

    Within 170 minutes you experience such an enormous amplitude of topics reaching politics, religion, social issues, disputes and most of all personal conflicts of each characters and their relationships. C. Puiu delivers a docudrama, but doesn't forget comic and tragic aspects which are always followed by our special ocassions and social interactions.
