The latest triumph for the Romanian New Wave won the top prize at last year’s Berlin Film Festival; it also was Romania’s official submission for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Child’s Pose is a potent social drama about a prosperous Bucharest architect (Luminita Gheorghiu of The Death of Mr. Lazarescu ) who will stop at nothing to keep her deadbeat thritysomething son out of jail after a deadly car crash. “A razor-sharp jibe at Romania's nouveau riche.” –Variety.
