Child's Pose2013

  • 4.0
The top prize winner at the Berlin Film Festival, Calin Peter Netzer's sharply crafted CHILD'S POSE pivots on a riveting performance by Luminita Gheorghiu as a steely, well-to-do Bucharest architect determined to keep her thirty-something deadbeat son out of jail after a deadly car crash. How far will she go to convince the police, eyewitnesses and even the victim's family that her son was not recklessly speeding? A spellbinding drama of social commentary and psychological realism, this caustic look into the corrupt heart of the Eastern European bourgeoisie twists into a brilliantly ambiguous study of obsessive motherly love. Savagely witty and utterly engrossing, CHILD'S POSE was also the Official Romanian Entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards®.

The film is good, but Luminita Gheorghiu is so brilliant in the leading role she elevates it to something far better.

The power of an understated performance. Luminita Cheorghiu as a possessive mother elicits our anger and pity ,while highlighting the social realities of modern Romania.
