A mesmerizing new masterwork from the director of the critically-acclaimed THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU, AURORA is a murder mystery turned on its head where the mystery s not the culprit, but the motive. Inside a non-descript apartment kitchen, a man and a woman discuss the inconsistencies in Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room. Behind a line of abandoned trailers, on the outskirts of Bucharest, the same man waits for something or someone to arrive. At a metallurgical factory, he collects two hand-made firing pins secretly prepared by a coworker. The man s name is Viorel. He is 42 years old, divorced, a father of two young girls, and today he will carry out a plan that will bring order to his world. Special Features
Cigarettes and Coffee (2004, 15 minutes) a short film by Cristi Puiu, winner of the Golden Bear for Short Film at the Berlin Film Festival.
