Full of superb performances, excellent craftsmanship, and unpredictable emotions, Tuesday, After Christmas is yet another gem from the Romanian New Wave that brought us 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days and The Death of Mr. Lazarescu.

When a husband embarks on an illicit affair, he must choose between the stability of his family life and the uncertainty and excitement of his relationship with his much younger mistress. Director Radu Muntean and his cast (with actors who are married playing the couple) bring scorching intensity and devastating dramatics to what could be a familiar story. (99 mins., 35mm)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
