Hidden Gem Films - 4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days (2007)

During the final days of communism in Romania, two college roommates, Otilia and Gabita, are busy preparing for a night away. But, rather than planning for a holiday, they are making arrangements for Gabita's illegal abortion and unwittingly, both find themselves burrowing deep down a rabbit hole of unexpected revelations.

The fascination of the film comes not so much from the experiences the friends have, however unspeakable, but in who they are, and how they behave and relate.

This is a raw, gritty masterpiece. 9/10.
