Cristian Mungiu’s film “4 luni, 3 saptamani, si 2 zile” (“4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days”) is devastating. It is a film that has defined “harrowing” for me. It is a hard film for a culture that is hard of heart. Like “The Passion of Christ” it is a film of such violence that is not necessary for everyone to experience. For those who would like to watch the film without commentary you should stop reading here, but for those that don’t wish to subject themselves to the film or for those who wish to soften its blow, read on.
