Police, Adjective

Police, Adjective

Original Title: Politist, Adjectiv
Romanian with subtitles
115 minutes min
New Directors Competition

From the writer/director of the internationally acclaimed 12:08 East of Bucharest comes an austere cop drama that says a lot by doing a little. Young inspector Cristi's conscience is keeping him from sending a kid to jail for seven years on a dope-smoking charge, but his by-the-book boss has other ideas about the definition of 'police.' Affirming Porumboiu as a singular new talent, Police, Adjective is already the winner of two top awards at Cannes.
