Movie Info

A hunt for buried treasure sends two men on a surprising comic caper in this Cannes prize-winning charmer from acclaimed director Corneliu Porumboiu (Police, Adjective; 12:08 East of Bucharest). Costi (Cuzin Toma) is a workaday family man whose cash-strapped next-door neighbor (Adrian Purcarescu) makes him an intriguing proposition: help him find the fortune reportedly buried somewhere on the grounds of his family's country home and split the profits. But as the two men dig, they unearth more than they bargained for, excavating not only dirt, but traces of Romania's often tumultuous history. Part modern day fable, part profound social commentary,The Treasure confirms Porumboiu's status as "one of our great contemporary observers of the human comedy" (Variety).

  • If the humor were any drier, it would be dust.

  • Slowly ... something changes, and the functionality of Porumboui's style gives way to an ever-so-slight hint of wonder.

    Jan 10, 2016 | Full Review…
  • It's good absurdist stuff, a little reminiscent of the work of Aki Kaurismäki, albeit without that filmmaker's wooly-headed whimsy.

    Jan 8, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Deadpan, determinedly low key and deeply absurd, the films of Corneliu Porumboiu are very much a particular taste, and "The Treasure" is no different.

  • This charmer is determinedly mundane and low-key, until an unexpected finale transforms it.

  • "The Treasure" is like the work of Samuel Beckett's long-lost Balkan cousin - bleak, stoic and suffused with a flinty, exasperated empathy for its ridiculous characters.
