Cristian Mungiu Romanya, 2016

Genadijus L.'s rating of the film Graduation

Desperate and muted (in a positive way) story of one man's efforts to tack together both daughter's future and personal position. Director Cristian Mungiu uses scalpel to frame lead character and social problems in Romania's periphery in front of each other. Adrian Titieni (as Romeo) gives one of the most outstanding male performances in European cinema this year.
