Synopsis

It is a beautifully sunny morning in Bucharest when Tudor heads to the local park with his 5-year-old daughter Maria and his 7-year-old son Ilie. When he turns his attention back to the kids after making a few phone calls, he is unable to spot his youngest anywhere.

MUBI's take

An expansive and riveting procedural from Romanian filmmaker Constantin Popescu, this gripping investigation into a child’s disappearance unfolds with nerve-jangling tension. With an award-winning performance from New Wave star Bogdan Dumitrache, Pororoca is a simmering tale of parental anguish.
