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.

Although the original title of the film suggests Romania, reduced to its consonants alone, the official reference is to clinical examinations - R.M.N. is the Romanian acronym for MRI - to which Otto, an elderly pastor respected by all, undergoes.
