Critic Reviews for Graduation (Bacalaureat)
The cinematography, the dialogue and the performances, especially Adrian Titieni's as an earnest and anxious Mr. Fix-It, are impressively naturalistic.
It's ... insistent that life is a series of complex decisions, with fate intruding, and the path's never clear.
It feels like nothing's happening until you realize everything is, right before your eyes.
Writer-director Cristian Mungiu continues his expert evisceration of his native Romania, and by extension, this whole rotten world and the people who make it that way, even as they convince themselves otherwise.
To Mungiu's credit, he makes it clear that, although the film is set in Romania, its moral quandaries could be taking place anywhere.
Audience Reviews for Graduation (Bacalaureat)
Mungiu uses his usual naturalistic style (with many long takes and even no score) to create a gripping criticism on Romanian society, showing a series of exasperating incidents that compel an honest and methodical man to do things he would never do in normal circumstances.
