Child's Pose
aka Poziţia copilului

Twitter Capsule: Character and camera get a bit hyperbolic in potent, affecting, uneven tale. Works as melodrama or political fable.

VOR:   Not ready to call this redundant, but in plot and style it's often predictable even when it's accomplished. Is the Romanian wave ebbing?
