TRUST NO ONE

One Floor Below

Un etaj mai jos

RADU MUNTEAN
Romania, France, Sweden, Germany, 2015
93 minutes, Color
Official website

Sandu Patrascu has a peaceful life with his wife, son, and dog. On a routine day, he hears a violent argument between a man and a woman in a downstairs apartment. Patrascu walks away but later that day he learns that the woman is found dead. Patrascu suspects that his neighbor Vali Dima is involved but says nothing to the police. Dima in turn believes that Patrascu knows the truth and quietly starts to inject himself into Patrascu's life in an almost casual, neighborly manner. Dima's constant presence increases Patrascu's moral dilemma. Patrascu is forced to suppress his true feelings, but his conscience tugs at him. Director Radu Muntean (Tuesday, After Christmas) skillfully keeps the tension on a tightrope and lets Patrascu's rage simmer below the surface. One Floor Below is a masterful work from the recent Romanian New Wave.—Calgary International Film Festival

In Romanian with English subtitles
