Winner of best picture (the Golden Bear) at the Berlin Film Festival
Official Romanian Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2014 Academy Awards
Călin Peter Netzer’s sharply crafted CHILD’S POSE pivots on a riveting performance by Luminita Gheorghiu as a steely, well-to-do Bucharest architect determined to keep her 30-something deadbeat son out of jail after a deadly car crash.
A spellbinding drama of social commentary and psychological realism, this caustic look into the corrupt heart of the Eastern European bourgeoisie twists into a brilliantly ambiguous study of obsessive motherly love.
“Child’s Pose sounds like something simple and easy, but don’t be fooled. This stunning film from Romania, exceptionally written, directed and acted and winner of the Berlin Film Festival’s prestigious Golden Bear, is anything but uncomplicated. A ferocious psychological drama with the pace of a thriller, Child’s Pose combines, as have the best of the Romanian new-wave films, a compelling personal story about mothers and sons with an examination of socio-political dynamics in a way that is both intense and piercingly real.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“When the stars are aligned—the writing and direction along with the stars in front of the camera—a movie can put the most appalling characters on display and still make them engrossing. That’s the case with “Child’s Pose,” a Romanian drama, directed by Calin Peter Netzer from a script he wrote with Razvan Radulescu, about a madly controlling mother and her woefully passive son.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
