Deliberately-paced police procedural anti-thriller from Romanian writer-director Corneliu Porumboiu, following undercover cop Cristi (Bucur) as he questions the wisdom of attempting to charge and convict a teenager for dope-smoking. A clever and deceptively simple interrogation into the nature of authoritarianism, language and power in small-town Romania 20 years after the revolution.
