This Saturday, November 29th, the Cinema Club of Santorini will present the movie 4 months, 3 weeks and 2 days. The film will be presented in Boutari Winery, Megalochori, and will start at 8:45 p.m. This Romanian movie, directed by Christian Mungiu, won the Palme d'Or and the FIPRESCI award at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.
It tells the story of Otilia and Gabita, two university friends who live in the years of the Ceausescu regime. When Gabita gets pregnant, she decides to get an abortion. However, abortions were illegal in Communist Romania, as they were thought as antiregime actions. The movie deals with free-thinking and how it is suppressed in severe political times, as well as the decline of morals.
