three times awarded in Cannes, with a golden palm for 4 months, 3 weeks, 12 days in 2007, Cristian Mungiu continues his analysis of the Romanian company with R.M.N. which comes out in theaters on Wednesday, October 19. The filmmaker is somewhat below expectations due to a lack of balance between the chronicle of a Romanian village taken in a rigorous winter, and the denunciation of the xenophobia that rages there.

Mathias returns from Germany in his small Romanian village, after having fled his work, following a brawl in his business. He finds his son disturbed by an obsessive vision, his partner who takes care of it, his sick father, and his former mistress. When the local industrial bakery recruits foreigners, the population launches a petition to send them home. The apparent civil peace between Romanian, Hungarian and German communities in the village is broken.

On the occasion of the National Architecture Days, the Building Association with the Architect organizes, in partnership with the director Guillaume Meigneux, the screening of the slightly modified housing film.

In all his films, Cristian Mungiu explores Romanian society. After abortion, the years that, religion, religion and education, he is now attacking xenophobia that plagues the country following the migratory wave of recent years. The title R.M.N. (I. R. M. in Romanian) designates the medical imagery of the brain of Mathias's father whom he regularly consults on his laptop. This representation of a degenerate brain could return to the deregulated Romanian software. But the acronym of the title also reminds of that of Romania, as on a mineralogical plate. He would then evoke a global Romania, through the particular case of this Romanian village. The record is not glorious.


starting on the mysterious vision of a frightened child in the forest, R.M.N. Then follows Mathias who finds his world and especially his son to whom he wants to devote himself. But he is embarrassed by the mother of the little one, his partner, when he prefers an ex-master. The film is somewhat bogged down in the chronicle of this snowy village, crossed by successive harmless anecdotes from which a fairly poor dramaturgy emerges. Why not ? But one wonders where Mungiu wants to come with this pearl necklace, with repetitive episodes. Until the background subject finally emerges: the radical opposition of the population to the presence of three foreigners in the village.

The Rorqual de Bryde is a very discreet species of whale which lives exclusively in the Gulf of Mexico. Since the early 2000s, the scientists of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) have been doing everything to approach it, recalls the Washington Post . Last year, they managed to carry out the first genetic and morphological analysis of one of these Rorquals .

This is the most interesting part of the film, with a remarkable municipal meeting scene, played by non -professional actors who improvise their text. But what imbalance in the construction and rhythm of the film. The final scene, with actors grimted in bears is quite ridiculous, and gives the blow of grace to what turns out to be the least good film of an exciting filmmaker.
