Do Not Expect Too Much from the End of the World

In his latest film, Radu Jude has chosen extraordinary actress Ilinca Manolache to play a character on a mission: to find and cast one of the various employees of an Austrian company based in Romania who have suffered accidents due to the company’s negligence; the lucky worker will play the central role in an institutional “film”. Most of the story consists of Angela’s various trips to meet with these victims, driving through the city while arguing from time to time with her superior on the phone and on breaks filming herself with a filter that turns her face into that of an uninhibited, chauvinistic man ranting at the world. Jude adds another symbolic counterpoint to this dialectical game by editing in fifteen sequences from the 1981 film ANGELA MERGE MAI DEPARTE by Lucian Bratu, whose protagonist is a woman taxi driver. The result is a film that functions as a merciless criticism of how 21st century capitalism even alienates those who have given their approval to be exploited, a contemporary portrait of Bucharest in which its dispersed microphysical violence is felt without being spoken out loud and an oblique essay on the relationship between memory and the perception of reality and images. (Roger Koza)
