Police Adjective – Movie Review
The newest triumph from the burgeoning national cinema of Romania “Police, Adjective” is a wry comedy about crime, conscience and the beauty of language. Cristi is a policeman who refuses to arrest a young man who offers hash to two of his school mates. Cristi believes that the law will change, and does not want the life of a young man he considers irresponsible to be a burden on his conscience. For his superior, the word conscience has an entirely different meaning…
Police Adjective is actually not a bad movie, it just takes much too long to get to the point and I suspect that just under two hours, at least half of it is spent with no dialogue what so ever, just a cop following a kid who seems to be smoking pot. As I said, not a bad movie, just takes much too long to get to the point of what happens when a reasonable man is confronted with rigidity and self interest, so two stars.
