£3.00 Watch FREE with Curzon12
This intelligent satire of bureaucracy is yet another fascinating slice of Romanian new wave from director Corneliu Porumboiu who returns to Cannes this year with his first film in competition 'The Whistlers'. Cristi is a policeman who suffers from a crisis of conscience when he is assigned to gather evidence against a college student dabbling with soft drugs. Arguing for leniency to be shown towards what he regards as youthful irresponsibility, he finds his superiors have a very different interpretation of morality and the law. Directed by the award-winning Corneliu Porumboiu, 'Police, Adjective' is an intelligent, fascinating satire of bureaucracy. ★★★★ "Necessarily infuriating but finally very rewarding" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out ★★★★ - Anthony Quinn, The Independent ★★★★★ "Complex, intellectually rigorous and yet incredibly enjoyable on multiple levels" - Jason Wood, Little White Lies ★★★★★ "A "police procedural" with a difference: the policeman hero refuses to proceed" - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
