The newest work from Romanian filmmaker Radu Jude (SCARRED HEARTS) is a nearly three-hour-long film about a young female artist hired to mount a historical pageant in Bucharest’s Palace Square. There are shades of both Godard and Larry David here as everything goes off the rails. Uncategorizable, but bursting with life and ideas.
“A provocative, sarcastic, and momentous act of interrogation between the past and the present” – Jessica Kiang, Variety
“Darkly comic, politically timely…a mature, ambitious work from a spirited auteur who has mastered the cinematic rules well enough to break them with confidence.” – Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
“A dazzlingly dialectical and daring comedy that brings past and present together…” – Demetrios Matheou, Screen Daily
