Watch: 'When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism' Gets SFW and NSFW Trailers

Filmmaker Corneliu Porumboiu is just one of the many major talents to come out of the Romanian New Wave, and his gifts for minimalism and droll comedy served him well on his Camera D’Or-winning debut “12:08 East of Bucharest” and his Un Certain Regard Jury Prize-winning follow-up “Police, Adjective.” Porumboiu returns with “When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism,” and if the trailer is any indication, he has another winner on his hands.

The film stars Bogdan Dumitrache as a filmmaker suffering from a crisis of faith (as well as an imaginary medical condition). He’s having an affair with the lead of his new film (Diana Avramut), and he has only a few weeks left to finish his new film.

The trailer references Michelangelo Antonioni both visually and verbally, but it showcases Porumboiu’s sense of humor as well. Indiewire’s critic was a bit more mixed on it than some when it played at Locarno, but those awaiting Porumboiu’s return (or more from movement that also spawned Cristian Mungiu and Cristi Puiu, among others) should check it out. Cinema Guild has released both SFW and NSFW versions of the trailer (though only one shot differs), both of which are available below. No release date is set.
