Police, Adjective (Politist, Adjectiv)
Dragos Bucur, Vlad Ivanov, Irina Saulescu, Ion Stoica, Marian Ghenea, Cosimi Selesi / Fiction / Romanian
An astonishingly clever and original drama about morality, legality, and ... grammar.
Tasked with pursuing a schoolboy suspected of supplying marijuana, a young policeman becomes troubled by the clash between duty and instinct. The struggle he undertakes with his conscience and his superiors provides an intriguing, philosophical allegory; but most delightfully, it’s played with warmth and humour, and an extraordinary investment in the detail of its characters’ lives. Already a multiple prizewinner, this is one of the finest European films of recent years.
