A Romanian film, a favorite at Cannes


This year, a film that portrays Romania towards the end of the Nicolae Ceausescu dictatorship and all its callous harshness has a serious chance of winning the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. "Four months, three weeks and two days", one of the first films that was screened, has led the pools almost from the beginning.

Directed by Cristian Mungiu, it takes place in a single day and tells the story of the illegal abortion of an unwanted child and the trial of her friend and accomplice. His popularity at Cannes is appropriate, given that the main competition has been full of gruesome stories, according to the trade press, as well as outstanding performances from his actresses main.

The movie marathon ends on Sunday night with the awards ceremony. Journalists are loosening up, crowds have thinned, and movies are back in the spotlight after 10 hectic days of screenings, interviews, red carpets, parties and deals. "Four Months, Three Weeks and Two Days" is one of the few films at Cannes this year that has brought together critics from France and abroad.
