WHEN EVENING FALLS ON BUCHAREST or METABOLISM

[CÂND SE LASÃ SEARA PESTE BUCURESTI SAU METABOLISM]
From renowned director Corneliu Porumboiu (POLICE, ADJECTIVE; THE TREASURE), comes a contemplative and characteristically dry-humored tale of a narcissistic director on the edge. With two weeks left before wrapping on his latest project, Paul is falling apart, complaining about his supposed "ulcer" and insisting that an actress with a small role in the film (with whom he has been romantically engaged throughout shooting) do a nude scene. When the subject isn't the immediate film shoot, characters are inclined to discourse on and debate various historical and philosophical ideas. "Romanian cinema in its purest form." – Eric Kohn, Indiewire. DIR/SCR Corneliu Porumboiu; PROD Marcela Ursu. Romania/France, 2013, color, 89 min. In Romanian with English subtitles. NOT RATED
