Palme d’Or-winning director Cristian Mungiu (4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS, 2 DAYS) presents a superbly crafted and complex portrait of a community at the cross section of poverty, ecology, and politics. Matthias (Marin Grigore) returns home to his multi-ethnic village in Transylvania, where he is preoccupied by his ailing father, his suddenly mute son, and his ex-lover Csilla (Judith State). When Csilla hires migrant workers from Sri Lanka at the local bread factory, the town’s thin veneer of understanding and calm is shattered, revealing the roots of xenophobia and the villagers’ underlying fears and conflicts. R.M.N. is a breathtakingly taut psycho-drama full of surreal twists and turns. An IFC Films release.
