  • Shot in Romania, THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU follows the title character as he waits for attention in a rundown hospital emergency ward. Fans of Lars Von Trier's THE KINGDOM should find much to love here, as Lazarescu's trip to the medical unit descends into a nightmare-ish journey of horrendous mistreatment at the hands of the hospital staff.

  • Critic Reviews
    "MR. LAZARESCU is that rich and riveting a film of universal small human moments and big-system failure." -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[A] striking, singular film....A mordant parable of and about our time as well as a poem of personal urban decay, LAZARESCU investigates how we treat one another, how we interact with the world."
    Los Angeles Times

    4 stars out of 5 --- "[With] huge life breaths of warmth and wit, compassion and dignity."
    Total Film

    "[A]s rich a human comedy, in the Balzacian sense, as anything in recent cinema."
    Sight and Sound

    "Puiu shows brilliantly how a series of seemingly banal incidents can have a devastating effect."
    Sight and Sound
