Winner of the top prize at the Berlin Film Festival, The Child’s Pose is a savagely witty and engrossing look at a mother’s love. The great actress Luminita Gheorghiu (The Death of Mr. Lazarescu) gives a riveting performance as a well-to-do Bucharest architect who is determined to keep her 30-something deadbeat son out of jail after a deadly car crash. A spellbinding drama distinguished by astute social commentary and psychological realism, this is yet another example of why the Romanian New Wave is producing some of the world’s most acclaimed films in recent years. (112 mins., DCP)
