Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The strength of "Tuesday, After Christmas," Mr. Muntean's fourth feature, lies in its rigorous, artful and humane fidelity to quotidian circumstance.
Fresh: Long takes with an often still camera call as little attention to Tudor Lucaciu's masterful lensing as possible, stripping down cinematic elements to their most basic and maintaining an observational stance without becoming fetishistic.
Rotten: The dissected minutiae of this adultery drama unfortunately doesn't add up to a very original or moving whole.
Fresh: "Tuesday, After Christmas" goes down pretty smooth, with a sneaky-powerful aftertaste.
