Police, Adjective Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A cop finds himself growing uncomfortable with his latest assignment in this study in the nature of power and authority from Romanian director [[Performer~P474009~Corneliu Porumboiu~corneliuporumboiu]]. Cristi ([[Performer~P390172~Dragos Bucur~dragosbucur]]) is a seasoned police detective who has just gotten married to Anca ([[Performer~P626042~Irina Saulescu~irinasaulescu]]) and wants to keep his superiors happy. Cristi's boss, Nelu ([[Performer~P626041~Ion Stoica~ionstoica]]), has ordered the detective to keep a close watch on Victor (Radu Costin), a teenager who is suspected of dealing drugs for a local cartel. Cristi has spent several weeks following Victor's actions and is certain that the kid smokes marijuana with his friends, but isn't any kind of drug pusher and should be left alone. Cristi is also aware that Romanian authorities are expected to relax their laws regarding drugs in the near future, making it all but pointless to possibly ruin Victor's life by bringing him in, but while Nelu understands Cristi's thinking, he's not so willing to let the youngster off so easily. Politist, Adj. (aka Police, Adjective) was an official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
