Cristian Mungiu's elegantly crafted, brilliantly acted film, set in Bucharest in the late 1980s, near the end of the vile Ceausescu regime, needs special help in finding the audience it deserves.

There's no obvious 'style' in 4 Months, unless you count utterly natural acting, brutal but compassionate storytelling and disciplined camera work as a style.

Mungiu's fascination with modes (and codes) of behavior gives his period piece a resonant universality.
