Miracle / Miracol

by Bogdan George Apetri Feature Film Competition

A young woman sneaks out of a convent early one morning and takes a cab to the hospital of a small Romanian town. When she fails to return in the evening, the unpredictable police inspector Marius is assigned to investigate and retrace the novice's steps. What exactly happened? Marius comes across chilling clues to a crime that he attempts to solve with a growing obsession. But is this the investigator's only motivation? Director Bogdan George Apetri makes us question our own perceptions in this riveting mystery. His crime drama, a film of the new Romanian school, captivates with long takes and dissolute dialogue.
