Synopsis

This was winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2007, not surprisingly in view of its beautifully textured story, impressive camerawork and brilliant acting - a work of considerable purity and honesty which offers further proof of Romania's new prominence in the film world. Set in the last years of Ceausescu's dictatorship, it focuses on a pair of twenty-something students desperately looking for a hotel room in town. They intend to take Mr Bébé there, who will help Gabita with a small problem: she is pregnant, which is not a straightforward matter in a Catholic police-state, and she does not want to keep the baby. Mr Bébé is no saintly Vera Drake however, and he demands a proper payment...

Critics
