Moartea domnului Lăzărescu

Cristi Puiu România, 2005

ihor's rating of the film The Death of Mr. Lăzărescu

Dark, realist and dry humor capturing the great essence of post-communist Romanian new wave cinema. The seeming ridiculously of communist institutions, as the Czechoslovak new waves critiqued to great affect, has disappeared yet the impersonality and continuing despair of society remains in Romanian society as well as post-communist Eastern Europe as a whole. Everything is captured and delivered slowly with detail.
