This is a 2007 Romanian film set during the days of Nicolae Ceaușescu and tells the story of a university student and her friend who is illegally getting an abortion.
So there is no need then to explain that this is heavy stuff and overall quite a downer. It is though a very well made and told film and has some very tense scenes, the final five minutes or so especially. It is all done without dramatic music of any kind, no fancy cinematography, or over-the-top acting.
The acting is superb, and for the two main female roles was obviously very difficult at times.
It was very interesting to listen to the Romanian language. It seems to be very similar to both Italian and Russian, and even a little French.
