Animali Selvatici (R.M.N.) by C. Mungiu
Defined a masterpiece, a disarming dissection of human nature and contemporaneity, pervaded by tensions, intolerance and fear. A look that goes deep into evil, the evil of people, the evil that undermines society, the evil of living.
Matthias, a surly and taciturn German slaughterhouse worker, quarrels with his employer and flees to Recia, his native village in Transylvania. Here he finds a complicated situation: his wife Ana is raising their son Rudi in an overprotective way, while his lover Csilla has made a career in a large local bakery. When the latter, in order to obtain EU benefits, has to hire laborers from Sri Lanka, intolerances that have been dormant for a long time but are more alive than ever emerge in the village.
