(aka Tuesday, After Christmas)

 

Directed by Radu Muntean
Romania
2010

 

Radu Muntean's widely acclaimed drama unfolds against the catastrophic effect of adultery upon a marriage. Successful, 30-something banker Paul is married to Adriana and has a daughter Mara, but is having an affair with the younger Raluca, the girl's dentist. In the days before Christmas, Paul realizes it's time to choose between one of his two lives.

A fixture on many 'Best Films of 2011' lists, Tuesday, After Christmas is an astutely observed, deeply felt drama showcasing the strengths of current Romanian cinema in its beautifully calibrated performances, expert craftsmanship, and dazzling technical mastery. Further evidence of director Radu Muntean's place at the forefront of contemporary filmmakers.

Comments:

Wooo... great film. Keenly observed by the director on human relationships and all the adulterous effects there-of. I wasn't banking on Tuesday, After Christmas being as impacting as it is. A fabulous choice by Second Run to bring to DVD.

Typical of this UK outfit - the DVD is dual-layered, region free and progressive while rendered in the PAL standard. We get a tight image that looks very expressive in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio . Colors are bright and detail is impressive for the format. This has a high bitrate. I'd say that the visuals presentation also exceeded my expectations.

The audio (Romanian language) is clear and competent prevalent pauses. There is no aggression nor many (if any) effects. There are, complete, optional English subtitles.

Supplements include a 17-minute interview with director Radu Muntean where he appears conformable revealing many details of his life. Second Run have also included some liner note in a booklet that have an essay and photos.

Tuesday, After Christmas is a well-crafted masterpiece and we can strongly recommend the Second Run package. The very reasonable price offers immense value! Strongly recommended!
