Moartea domnului Lăzărescu

Cristi Puiu România, 2005

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

as difficult as it is to get through this very long, very depressing and slow moving film... without a shred of hopefulness... you will think about it days, weeks, months later and realize... those were all actors- extraordinarily realistic- i felt like was actually watching romanian doctors/paramedics- not for everyone's taste. and i still don't, and never will, understand why this is considered a comedy.
