As Dante Remus Lazarescu is turned away from overflowing hospitals and taken seriously only by a female paramedic, we are made to care deeply about an individual society would prefer to ignore. Puiu turns the gruelling prospect of a Romanian tragi-comedy about the final hours of a dying pensioner into a work of compelling humanist cinema.
