Rating: 12


Doru Nițescu's film Carmen is another instance of dramatic brilliance to derive from New Romanian Cinema. The story details the psychological burden of a mother, Mariana (Rodica Lazăr), dealing with her young daughter's, Carmen (Iulia Lupascu), life-threatening illness. In the midst of the tragedy comes another grim depiction of Romania's corrupt health care system - something notoriously highlighted in Cristi Puiu's The Death of Mr Lazarescu. Both actresses have been lauded for their performances, both on a national scale and throughout Europe.
