At the New York Film Festival this morning, an iPhone snapshot of Cristian Mungiu, director of this year’s Cannes Palme d’Or winner, “4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days”. Those involved with the film would really prefer if you didn’t refer to it as the “Romanian abortion film,” even though its from Romania and deals with abortion. In fairness, the exceptional new film is actually about so much more. And from a sheer technical point of view, its a real knockout. Mungiu’s film deserves every award it has won and will win in the future. Congrats to all involved.
