PR Police, Adjective on DVD Aug 30

Police, Adjecti

Cristi (Dragos Bucur) is a young undercover cop who undergoes a crisis of conscience when he is pressured to arrest a teenager who offers hashish to classmates. Not wanting to ruin the life of a young man he considers merely irresponsible, Cristi must either allow the arrest to weigh on his conscience, or face censure by his self-serious superior (Vlad Ivanov, of 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), for whom the word "conscience" has an entirely different meaning. Porumboiu approaches his story with the exacting patience of a master ironist, culminating in one of the most unexpected comedic payoffs in years—an extraordinary dissection of language that affirms his reputation as one of the most exciting new talents in European cinema.
