Not everything is as it seems for Cristi, a police inspector in Bucharest who plays both sides of the law. Embarking with the beautiful Gilda on a high-stakes heist, both will have to navigate the twists and turns of Romanian corruption, treachery and deception.
“The dirty-cop trope gets an imaginative new workout in this sly and intricate crime drama by the director Corneliu Porumboiu.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker
“Poromboiu has always been the funniest of the Romanian new wave directors, albeit with a bitter twist and deliberately rough delivery. Here, clearly reveling in the constraints of genre convention, he delivers pure entertainment.” – Stephanie Bunbury, The Age (Australia)
“An elegant and stylishly crafted piece of entertainment.” – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
