    What the movie understands is that the past, no matter how unpleasant, must always be depicted honestly. Also, I like the focus here which is directed squarely on everyday people and their prejudices.

    Radu Jude crafts this visually classic Western in black and white with a camera that seems to glide in wide-angle long shots, and uses a comical - and curiously theatrical - approach to show the racism and sexism of a time that doesn't seem so distant from modern Romanian society.
