Puiu’s (The Death of Mr. Lazarescu) mesmerizing new masterwork follows a seemingly ordinary engineer whose homicidal rage lurks just beneath his taciturn surface. A murder mystery turned on its end—where the mystery’s not the culprit, but the motive—this haunting addition to the remarkable Romanian New Wave asks tough questions but offers no easy answers.

NR, 181 Minutes, In Romanian with English subtitles

"As confounding in its way as L'Avventura must have seemed in 1960."
- J. Hoberman, Village Voice
