Movie Info

Director Cristian Mungiu's drama 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days unfolds in Romania in the late '80s, during the last waning days of Communist rule. Anamaria Marinca and Laura Vasiliu play, respectively, Otilia and Gabita, two female friends and students who share a Bucharest flat. They soon find themselves saddled with an overwhelming problem: Gabita is expecting. With abortion illegal in Romania at that time, the women seek an illicit termination at the hands of one Mr. Bebe (Vlad Ivanov) in a seedy Romanian hotel -- but Bebe refuses to accept money in return for his services and demands a certain "alternate" commodity instead. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

Audience Reviews for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

  • Sep 17, 2013
    A startlingly realistic and painfully minimalistic Romanian film that succeeds at making audiences care just as much about what could be happening in the off-screen world of these characters as what we are shown on-screen.

    Shot mainly in long takes, but not necessarly complicated or elaborate ones, this film use as little cuts as possible, which is refreshing compared to most mainstream movies. The story is interesting and painfully intense, even though it's quite slow in parts. The acting is solid, but I have to say that one of the characters is extremely annoying, making me lose interest in the film for a while. Hopefully, director Cristian Mungiu is talented enough, which brought me right back into the story. Solid drama.

    An excellent and gripping film. A must see. The actors make this film great. Some of the lengthy takes are wonderful and creative. An important film... a social commentary.

    Very depressing and disturbing. I did not care for this at all. Dang film class!
