This intelligent satire of bureaucracy is yet another fascinating slice of Romanian new wave from director Corneliu Porumboiu ('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.
