Director: Radu Muntean
"A further example of Romanian virtuosity." - Village Voice
After ten years of marriage, Paul juggles the easy familiarity of his wife and child with the playful passions of his mistress. But a chance meeting in a waiting room brings the three parties together and pushes Paul to make the uncomfortable decision he has been avoiding.
Rarely have the corners of a love triangle been so sharply drawn as in this domestic melodrama by writer-director Radu Muntean (Boogie, MIFF 2008), whose screenwriting team of Alexandru Baciu and Răzvan Rădulescu are between them responsible for the greatest of the Romanian new wave films. Tautly naturalistic and played out with theatrical intensity, Tuesday, After Christmas is an eerily recognisable account of the often conflicting demands of desire and love.
"Of this film, Ingmar Bergman, patron saint of disintegrating relationships, would undoubtedly approve." - Filmmaker Magazine
