POLICE, ADJECTIVE, A film by Corneliu Porumboiu, NR, 115min, In Romanian with English subtitles.
Police, Adjective is Romania's official Oscar selection and winner of a 2009 Cannes Jury Prize (Un Certain Regard) and FIPRESCI international critics' prize, Corneliu Porumboiu's whip-smart, dryly funny follow-up to his acclaimed debut 12:08 East Of Bucharest centers on a police officer on a surveillance mission who has a crisis of faith. Cristi is a young undercover cop pressured to arrest
a teenager who offers hashish to two of his schoolmates. "Offering" is harshly punished by the law, but Cristi believes that the law will change. Not wanting to ruin the life of a young man he considers merely irresponsible, Cristi must either allow the arrest to be a
burden on his conscience, or face censure by his superior for whom the word "conscience" has an entirely different meaning.
