About the Movie

Set in early 19th century Wallachia, when a local policeman, Costandin, is hired by Iordache, a boyar (local noble), to find Garfin, a Gypsy slave who had run away from the boyar's estate after having an affair with his wife, Sultana. Costandin sets out to find the fugitive, beginning a journey full of adventures. Gypsy slavery lasted from the 14th century up until the middle of the 19th century, a situation which is very little known and almost nonexistent in the public debate today, although its impact continues to influence Romania's social life.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A funny and brutal costume drama with a potent contemporary kick. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jan 21, 2016

Fresh: Radu Jude's most accomplished and original feature yet. – Jay Weissberg, Variety, Aug 20, 2015

Fresh: In subject and style, it's a departure from [Jude's] contemporary satires, but the period story is evidence of the same keen eye for class hierarchy, codified cruelty and the limits of self-deception. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Jan 21, 2016

Fresh: Aferim! plays like a sleight of hand, amusing us at a distance with vulgarisms and entrancing us with countryside while the bloody work of civilization grinds on out of the corner of our eye. – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Jan 19, 2016
