A STUN­NING char­ac­ter study of a woman whose love for her only child is un­healthily un­con­di­tional.

Cor­nelia ( Lu­minita Ghe­o­rghiu) is a six­tysome­thing so­cialite who has just learned her son Barbu ( Bog­dan Dumitrache) has struck and killed a small boy in a car ac­ci­dent.

Cor­nelia clin­i­cally switches into pro­tec­tive-lioness mode the mo­ment she hears the bad news, ex­ploit­ing all her pow­er­ful con­nec­tions to en­sure Barbu never faces the con­se­quences of what he has done.

Bril­liantly played by Ghe­o­rghiu, Cor­nelia is a real piece of work. Don’t try to un­der­stand her, but just try to take your eyes off her. Highly rec­om­mended to lovers of ex­em­plary world cin­ema.
