When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism

It would seem that the new wave of Romanian cinema is already circling back in on itself. With films like "The Death of Mr. Lăzărescu," "12:08 East of Bucharest," "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days," "Child's Pose" and "Beyond The Hills" highlight the new filmmaking voices emerging from the nation, one director is turn a camera back on that entire scene. "Police, Adjective" director Corneliu Porumboiu has returned with "When Evening Falls On Bucharest Or Metabolism" and it promises a look at the process of making movies from a unique perspective.

Starring Bogdan Dumitrache and Diana Avramut, the story follows a director of some renown, who is suffering from an imaginary medical condition, a real crisis of faith and is plagued with doubt. He has two weeks left to shoot his latest opus, but he's uncertain, and from an affair with his lead actress to the films Michelangelo Antonioni, he's not quite sure what is keeping him off balance. And as you'll see in the NSFW trailer below, the film is infused a very dry wit, a staple of Romanian cinema at the moment.

Cinema Guild will release "When Evening Falls On Bucharest Or Metabolism" later this year. Watch the unrated trailer below or, if you're at the office, the clean version below that.
