4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007)

Powerful,Shocking and Stark.

If you haven’t seen this ,we must say that you are missing one of the powerful and haunting movie ever made.

Pregnant student Gabita and her roommate Otilia checks into a cheap hotel where a backstreet abortionist called Bebe helps Gabita to solve her problem for money.We don’t want to tell more about the story as this has to pierce into our heart as we watch it.

4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days is a Romanian film directed by Cristian Mungiu.It has no music but filled with powerful dialogues and silences.A lot of long shots of one character, with little or no coverage of the other characters in the room. The shots are hand held and dimly lit to create the suspense.

If I were Otilia, I would never even see Gabita again.
