Movie Info

A mesmerizing new masterwork from the director of the critically-acclaimed The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, Aurora is a murder mystery turned on its head - where the mystery's not the culprit, but the motive. Inside a non-descript apartment kitchen, a man and a woman discuss the inconsistencies in Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room. Behind a line of abandoned trailers, on the outskirts of Bucharest, the same man waits for something or someone to arrive. At a metallurgical factory, he collects two hand-made firing pins secretly prepared by a coworker. The man's name is Viorel. He is 42 years old, divorced, a father of two young girls, and today he will carry out a plan that will bring order to his world. -- (C) Cinema Guild

Audience Reviews for Aurora

  • Jun 24, 2011
    A 3 hour Romanian film may be a tough sell for most of the American moviegoing public, but Cristi Puiu's engrossing follow-up to THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU is a taut and darkly funny look at the into the mindset of a killer. Bravely humanizes its protagonist (whose motives remain unknown), and follows his grim quest with voyeuristic intensity and a wry sense of humor. It breaks down the act of killing to its most basic components, examining it as an everyday occurrence, while Also taking a nearly satirical stab at the seeming nonchalance with which it is treated by the authorities. Murder is no longer news.
