4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days

Sunday 23rd March 5:00 PM


This was winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2007, not surprisingly in view of its beautifully textured story, impressive camerawork and brilliant acting - a work of considerable purity and honesty which offers further proof of Romania's new prominence in the film world.

Set in the last years of Ceausescu's dictatorship, it focuses on a pair of twenty-something students desperately looking for a hotel room in town. They intend to take Mr Bébé there, who will help Gabita with a small problem: she is pregnant, which is not a straightforward matter in a Catholic police-state, and she does not want to keep the baby. Mr Bébé is no saintly Vera Drake however, and he demands a proper payment...


“Pitch perfect and brilliantly acted, 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days is a stunning achievement”
