A film by Radu Jude. In Romanian with German subtitles.

[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

A video goes viral. It shows a man and a woman having sex while wea­ring masks. The woman is, nevertheless, iden­ti­fied. Too bad she is a tea­cher and sup­po­sed to be a role model. And this, moreo­ver, in a (post-socia­list but ulti­mate­ly any) socie­ty that is about to get lost in a social net­work dis­cour­se of would-be healing sque­aky-clean atti­tu­des, pseu­do-poli­ti­cal knowing-it-all, sanc­ti­mo­nious chau­vi­nism and gro­tes­que con­spi­ra­cy theo­ries. Everyone has an opi­ni­on. The deba­te turns into a tri­bu­nal – about con­sen­su­al sex, por­no­gra­phy and more.
Always up for inno­va­ti­ve cine­ma­tic expe­ri­ments, Radu Jude has craf­ted from this con­stel­la­ti­on an intel­li­gent, sati­ri­cal tri­ptych: with its non­cha­lant­ly pre­cise came­ra­work and manic humour found in the stress of ever­y­day life on Bucharest’s streets, the first part shows us what con­tem­pora­ry cine­ma at the docu­men­ta­ry-fic­tion inter­face can look like. The second part is an off­beat seri­es of laco­nic, sta­tic images inten­ded as an ency­clo­pa­edia of the sym­bols of our time. The film’s grand – albeit open-ended – fina­le is a dis­cus­sion held at the school in which jud­ge­ment is pas­sed on our heroine’s right to exist.
