Gabita and Otilia are two friends who are desperately looking for a hotel room. They intend to meet Mr Bébé there, who will help Gabita with a small problem: She is pregnant and does not want to keep the baby. But Bébé demands a proper payment for the actions he will perform, since they could land him in jail for several years. After Cristi Puiu's The Death of Mr Lazarescu, another very high-quality Romanian film explores the country's ills and the illnesses of its inhabitants. Cristian Mungiu set his tale of a very late abortion in 1987 and uses an unobtrusive yet utterly filmic style that mixes the handheld dogme aesthetic with beautiful static shots to great effect. (Boyd van Hoeij)
