Child's Pose

7 yrs 112 minutes 2013 7.4

The Romanian film Child’s Pose won the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlin Film Festival 2013. Cornelia Keneres lives in Bucharest's wealthy elite and holds her adult son Babu in strict rein. When Babu is responsible for a hit and run, where a young boy dies, Cornelia does everything possible for Babu to avoid punishment. “Child’s Pose explores dysfunctional relationships both at home and in the corrupt Romanian class community. It is a trying, slow, at times frustratingly diffuse, but also strong and uncomfortable film - lined with magnificently uncomfortable, almost absurd scenes, and with a ruggedly powerful contribution by Gheorghiu as a blonde, suffocating mother monster.” writes Karolina Fjellborg in Aftonbladet.
