Description

Wryly funny and suspenseful, this Cannes hit portrays a trio of Romanian aid workers (Dan, Maria, and Ilinca) whose SUV gets stuck on a logging road in remote Transylvania. Their day begins genially enough, but the journey takes a turn for the worse after they give a lift to a desperate old man that detours through the woods. As the day darkens, camaraderie between the threesome turns to sniping, and Dan leaves the women behind to get help. Matters intensify when a driver reeking of booze and machismo stops to offers assistance. With nuanced characters and dialogue, Radu Muntean’s film explores potent issues of bias and privilege by putting those whose very job is to give aid, in need of aid themselves.
