4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days

Cristian Mungiu

 Cristian Mungiu's drama unfolds in Romania in the late '80s, during the last waning days of Communist rule. Otilia and Gabita, two female friends and students who share a Bucharest flat, soon find themselves saddled with an overwhelming problem: Gabita is expecting. With abortion illegal in Romania at that time, the women seek an illicit termination at the hands of one Mr. Bebe in a seedy Romanian hotel—but Bebe refuses to accept money in return for his services and demands a certain "alternate" commodity instead.
