The Death of Mr. Lazarescu
01/21/09 at 04:03 AM by TJ Wells




Directed by Cristi Puiu
Rated R
2005
153 minutes

**** 1/2

Much like the films of the Dardenne brothers, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days or United 93, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, about an old man being pushed carelessly from hospital to hospital on a rainy Romanian night, doesn't create drama. It simply lets it's story unfold, and if drama should happen to come about, then it captures it. Otherwise, this is a brilliantly frank story of the problems with Romania's health-care system, and the cruelness some of its doctors can exhibit under stress.
