Child's Pose

Rated NR 112 minutes 2013

In contemporary Romania, an imperious matriarch named Cornelia (played by Luminita Gheorghiu) swiftly moves to battle stations when her weak, spoiled grown son (Bogdan Dumitrache) is arrested for fatally running down a teenage boy while driving. Soon, we forget about the kid and become fascinated with the mother and her machinations. Everywhere she goes she’s cutting deals – with the police, her son, the son’s wife, a greedy witness, etc. – and we come to see her as a jealous, possessive, even malignant influence on everyone around her. Under the sinuous direction of Calin Peter Netzer, we experience the story as if we were living it. Screenplay by Netzer and Razvan Radulescu (112 min.).
