After a rapturous reception, rave reviews and winning the Palme D'Or at Cannes earlier this year, Romanian writer/director Christian Mungiu's film 4 Months, 3 Weeks and Two Days has finally made it to North America -- playing at both the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals. Set in Romania during the last days of Ceaucescu, 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days follows two college roommates, Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) and Gabita (Laura Vasiliu); Gabita's trying to arrange an illegal abortion; Otilia's standing by her friend, no matter what the cost. It's a film with rough-hewn humanity and blunt realism, the tension of a nail-biting thriller and the unblinking gaze of a documentary. Cinematical had the chance to speak with Mungiu in Toronto, and the soft-spoken writer-director shared his thoughts on his directing process, his film's possible reception in America and the personal stories that drove him to make this film.
