93. 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (Mungiu, 2008)
Tentatively defined by its visual style - which can best be described as a hybrid of handheld voyeurism and diligently-framed symmetrical compositions that play with shadow and light as they pertain to a naturalistic environment - 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days doesn't so much condemn the idea of abortion as it does the social limitations that restrict free will. The film takes place in 1980's Romania at which time abortion was illegal. In this, Mungiu's lingering lens follows protagonist Gabriela Dragut (Laura Vasiliu) as she and her friend Otilia (Anamaria Marinca) attempt to procure the procedure for Gabriela after learning of her pregnancy. But rather than merely weigh the moral implications of ending a life before it truly begins, Mungiu focuses his attention on the dangers of limiting one's freedom and how this breeds social and cultural stigmas, the likes of which reach beyond the, albeit tragic, loss of one life.
Glad to see this film make your top 100, thought it was a great film.
