Monsters.

New York Premiere

Dir. Marius Olteanu, Romania, 2019, 116 mins

Presenting a clear snapshot of a contemporary Romanian couple through three distinct chapters, Marius Olteanu’s formal portrait of a marriage in silent disarray is immersive in its naturalism and sneaky in its sense of humor. Subtly exploring the varied routes through which humans seek connection, whether through an extended all-night conversation with a cab driver or a secretive Grindr hookup, MONSTERS. is an observational film that refuses to judge its characters no matter how desperate they appear to be at times.

Following two decades of expertly crafted cinema known for its distinct humanism and deadpan wit, the Romanian New Wave can finally claim its queer masterpiece with this quietly stunning and form-expanding debut.

Writer: Marius Olteanu
Cast: Judith State, Cristian Popa
