Review
The friendship between two girls is tested to its absolute limits in this utterly compelling drama set in the twilight years of Communist-era Romania. Gabita, young, naļve and pregnant, turns to her more pragmatic room mate Otilia for help and a meeting is arranged in a downtown hotel with a shady abortionist. Entering a dangerous and illegal underworld where the stakes are high and nothing is as it seems, the girls are set for a life-changing experience that neither will ever forget. "4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days" belongs to a larger project called: Tales from the Golden Age - a subjective history of communism in Romania told through its urban legends. Thoughtful, superbly performed and intelligently directed, this is a tense, poignant and provocative film.
