Patrascu (Teodor Corban) spends a lot of time caring for his happy golden retriever. His son is so consumed with videogames he mumbles about passcodes in his sleep. Everything about his life is mundane to the point that, as an audience member, you begin projecting great importance onto every strangely front-and-centre detail. Oh, I should point out that Patrescu probably knows there's a murder in his building.
Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
A moral quandary melds with a skilled construction of three-dimensional bourgeois life in Radu Muntean's lean, absorbing anti-thriller.
