Adultery, Romanian Style

Radu Muntean, NYC, 9/30/10

Now playing at Film Forum,  Radu Muntean’s “Tuesday, After Christmas,” made me more anxious on second viewing.  Although the characters’ actions remained the same, of course, the feelings driving them (particularly Paul’s), registered as more ambivalent,  yet oddly inevitable, like a car crash.

Another amazing (and punch-in-the gut) film from the Romanian New Wave, this domestic emotional thriller, details the breakdown of a marriage in long takes and three perfect performances.
