From acclaimed auteur Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), comes a stunning new piece of cinema. Set in a remote Transylvanian town where customs and tradition bind the community together, historic resentments start to bubble to the surface with the arrival of some new immigrant workers who have been hired by the local factory. 

Underlying frustrations and fears soon grip the populace, erupting through the veneer of understanding and calm. With divisions forming and tensions running high, it falls to a few residents to try and prevent the community from breaking apart completely.

Featuring an outstanding cast, R.M.N. is a gripping, breathtaking and powerful new work from one of the masters of European cinema.

R.M.N. is the Romanian acronym for “nuclear magnetic resonance” and, sure enough, modern master Cristian Mungiu’s urgent, fiercely intelligent migration drama doubles as a laser-enhanced dissection of European hypocrisies and contradictions. – Irish Times

While ‘R.M.N.’ largely takes place in Romania, as Mungiu makes forcefully clear, this is also a story that transcends borders…his touch is so deft and his filmmaking so enlivening, and the villagers so laughable (if also scary!), that you never feel dragged down or punished by the ugliness. – New York Times

R.M.N. is as gripping and scrupulously humane as Mungiu’s admirers have come to expect from an artist of supreme discipline and dramatic skill. – Washington Post
