4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days (2007)

My first ever experience with Romanian films and a very positive one at that thankfully. A very unconventional film, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days follows a girl trying to help her roommate get an illegal abortion in 1980's Romania. The film tries to capture the full experience of the task at hand and manages to give the viewers a true roller coaster of emotions. Director Cristian Mungiu really managed to create an incredible story out of just one day. I am really happy I decided to watch this film because it gave me a new director to follow. Hopefully, I will watch his other films and see how they stack up. Now however, let me get into the review of 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days.
