Reenactment
Reconstituirea
1968 Romania 100 min N-13
Added to my films
After a silly, drunken brawl with each other, two young friends are ordered back to the scene of their "crime" by a local prosecutor and forced to re-enact the event for a public-service film. The pair re-create their set-to with jovial high spirits at first, but as the shooting wears on through the afternoon, tensions and tempers start to rise, leading to all too real and violent consequences.

"Regarded as the best Romanian film of all time, "Reenactment" is a poetic, searing critique of the insidious and corruptive nature of power. Confronting the viewer with an uncomfortable illustration of the theme "To Act or/and To Be?" by examining participation in structures of power or attempts to subvert them, this timeless meditation on the moral and ethical implications of cinema's intrinsic manipulation of reality exposes the fallibility of human nature." (Andrei Tănăsescu)
