Viorel is a scowling, sluggish man of few words. With Puiu's long-take minimalism hypnotically attuned to the rhythms of Viorel's day, the film follows this implacable loner into the grey Bucharest light. But beneath the every-day routines, Puiu creates a subtle, slow-burning tension that's as gripping as any thriller.
