4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days

A SURPRISING, GRIPPING AND SATISFYING FILM. A STARTINGLY GOOD DRAMA. The story is tautly, bravely acted. More important, the tale is so compelling that it seduces viewers as a fairy tale does a child.

— Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

Brilliant.

— J. Hoberman, The Village Voice

A searing film, shot something close to real time, in long, unbroken takes that wrap around you like a vice.

— Scott Foundas, LA Weekly

BEAUTIFULLY REALISTIC, FAULTLESSLY MADE. Underlined the emergence of Romanian cinema as a world force.

— Kenneth Turan, LA Times

#1 FILM OF THE YEAR! A GREAT FILM.

— A.O. Scott, The New York Times

MASTERFUL. MOVING AND GRIPPING THROUGHOUT.

— Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

A TRIUMPH OF AESTHETIC. A ferocious often brilliantly directed film. Marks the emergence of an important new talent in the Romanian writer and director Cristian Mungiu.

— Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

****! A MASTERWORK. AN ODYSSEY YOU WON'T SOON FORGET.

— Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune

*****! A MASTERPIECE. Director Cristian Mungiu creates scenes unlike any ever filmed.

— Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

****! What you see will floor you...grips you in a vice of suspense.

— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

****! BRILLIANT.

— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

During the final days of communism in Romania, two college roommates Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) and Gabita (Laura Vasiliu) are busy preparing for a night away. But rather than planning for a holiday, they are making arrangements for Gabita’s illegal abortion and unwittingly, both find themselves burrowing deep down a rabbit hole of unexpected revelations. Transpiring over the course of a single day, Mungiu’s film is a masterwork of modern filmmaking, by parts poignant and shocking. Nominated for 4 European Film Awards including Best Picture and one of the standout hits of the Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS is a modern classic that will stay with you long after you’ve left the theater.
