Romanian auteur Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days) won the Best Director prize at Cannes for this incisive morality play. Determined that his daughter get into the "right school," physician Romeo (Adrian Titieni) is distraught when the girl is attacked in what appears to be an attempted rape — though largely because he fears the incident will distract her from acing her upcoming exams. As he goes to highly questionable lengths to ensure his daughter's academic success, Romeo becomes yet another cog in the corrupt system he claims to despise.
