With Ioana Jacob, Alex Bogdan, Alexnandru Dabija. “I do not care if we go down in history as barbarians.” These words, spoken by Romania’s military dictator Marshal Ion Antonescu in the Council of Ministers in the summer of 1941, started a campaign of ethnic cleansing on the Eastern Front. This ingeniously conceived film is by one of contemporary Europe’s most distinctive creators. While it unfolds slowly and in detail, it hits the viewer with a singular emotional punch.
