4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days Reviews
December 4, 2011
very disturbing - the cinematography evoked the mood of the film extremely well - to the point that it was almost its own character. the film's minimalist approach spoke volumes about the setting of the film (communist romania). the film itself was confusing at first, but engaging, because the audience had to work to decipher the film's subtleties. the only thing i didn't understand was why the protagonist sacrificed so much for her friend, especially when her friend was so unappreciative - i would have liked to know more about the relationship of the two friends, just so that the protagonist's efforts would feel more justified, but i guess leaving it ambiguous has it's own merits.

Drawn out and depressing.

The magic of this film is precisely how uncomfortable males will find this movie. Very rarely is the female perspective captured in such gratuitous detail.

Written with a keen eye for detail; as bleak and unblinking as it should be.

A simple story of a two women summarizes the degeneration of Romanian Society. Excellent camera movement, extensive close shots & brilliant acting made something extraordinary here !

This high tension drama is very graphic and deeply disturbing. Some noteworthy performances from the leads.

Wow, talk about a modern masterpiece. 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days is one of those films I don't see leaving me for a very long time, if ever. It's so painful, so natural, so beautiful and sad and frustrating and a million other things. The acting, combined with the long, structured takes, makes this one of the best films I've seen lately. I know I'll be thinking about this one for a while. Watch it.

A disturbing dark tale about an abortion committed in Romania. The emotional pain is hard to bear though.

The scene where she has gone to her boyfriend's parent's house and left her friend back at the hotel room - what a scene. I felt every emotion she must have been feeling that moment, and I so badly wanted to help her get to the phone - but I was nothing more than part of an audience, watching a fictional (in terms of characters but NOT story) movie. This is an incredible film.

The first half was good, then the second half absolutely bored me. It's also tough to feel for the characters when they act pretty dumb.

Although it is extremely raw, real and dark; that is also the reason it should be watched. These films are the reason films began in the first place. These are films about life, and the hardships we face. Especially in countries like this, where ev...read moreen trying to book a hotel room is nearly impossible. I think we all need to just put aside our opinions on abortions, as most of them are superficial anyway...and just see the film for what it is: truth.

A lulz filled romp about pregnancy...wait...shit, that was Knocked Up...never mind. This is great in the exact opposite way.

incredibly ruthless, bleak, and emotionally taxing and seriously one of the best movies you'll ever see. the glacial pace works in its favor because every moment is so intense and watchable that a 20 minute scene with a static camera seems shorter than it actually is. actually pretty relieved that it's every bit as good as i remembered it six years ago.
