Visual Diary: Tuesday, after Christmas/ Marţi, după Crăciun (2010) Radu Muntean

By Olivia Maria Hărşan

A special Christmas blog post. Although Tuesday, After Christmas by Romanian director Radu Muntean steers clear of any kind of festive happiness apart from the 'forced' family gathering at the end - it offers a bleak portrayal of an extra-marital affair and the eventual breaking-up of a marriage. Muntean's film is worth a watch this holiday season or more for those cynical at heart and appreciators of minimalist film for that matter. 

Merry Christmas to all Eastern European film enthusiasts out there, may you all eat plenty of sarmale, drink twice as much Țuică and be very very merry. La mulți ani cu sănătate!
