“Resonates not just as a vivid portrait of a culture at a particular moment in time, but also of the most enduring and confounding contradictions of human nature itself.”~Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post

Aroview: Subtly engrossing drama follows the moral dilemmas of a well-meaning and respected doctor who succumbs to Romania's endemic corruption in order to protect his daughter's promising academic future abroad.

In a similar way to Iran's Asghar Farhadi, writer/director Cristian Mungiu's delineates the impact of cultural conventions on personal lives while alluding to the universality of human nature.
