Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 04/28/2006
"MR. LAZARESCU is that rich and riveting a film of universal small human moments and big-system failure." -- Grade: A
Los Angeles Times - 05/05/2006
"[A] striking, singular film....A mordant parable of and about our time as well as a poem of personal urban decay, LAZARESCU investigates how we treat one another, how we interact with the world."
Total Film - 06/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 --- "[With] huge life breaths of warmth and wit, compassion and dignity."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2006
"[A]s rich a human comedy, in the Balzacian sense, as anything in recent cinema."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2007
"Puiu shows brilliantly how a series of seemingly banal incidents can have a devastating effect."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/29/2006
Included in Entertainment Weekly's "Top 10 Films Of The Year" -- "[T]he grim and grimy story also leaves room for humor..."
Film Comment - 01/01/2007
Ranked #2 in Film Comment's "20 Best Films Of 2006."

Product Description:

Shot in Romania, THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU follows the title character as he waits for attention in a rundown hospital emergency ward. Fans of Lars Von Trier's THE KINGDOM should find much to love here, as Lazarescu's trip to the medical unit descends into a nightmare-ish journey of horrendous mistreatment at the hands of the hospital staff.
