4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days, Dir. by Christian Mungiu

Not exactly "fun for the whole family," this bleak Romanian drama about abortion which took top honors at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007 remains one of the most celebrated films of the past decade. 4 Months, 3 Weeks And 2 Days follows two college rooommates as they arrange an illegal abortion in 1980s communist Romania. Can you spell F-U-N? The significance of the title only becomes apparent halfway through the film, but it has some gruesome ramifications, far as the operation is concerned. The film is sometimes somber to a fault -- welcome to the Balkans! -- but is nonetheless a triumph. It plays at the Cinematheque tonight at 5:15 and tomorrow at 9:30 as part of the Cultural Gardens Film Fest. (Sam Allard)
