  • Divorced father Marius will finally be allowed to take his five-year-old daughter Sofia on a much anticipated weekend vacation to the beach. He takes time off from school, borrows his parents' car and even buys little Sofia a stuffed octopus. Impatient to leave, Marius is told by Sofia's grandmother that his daughter is not free to go until her mother, Marius' ex-wife Otilia, returns from the salon. When Otilia walks through the door, the film veers sharply, quickly reaching a point of no return. Losing control of his emotions and the situation, Marius' anger escalates with horrifying consequences. Disguised as a family drama, EVERYBODY IN OUR FAMILY is a suspenseful exploration of a father being pushed to his limits when his child is kept from him. Shot in real time and set mostly in one location, Radu Jude's third feature film is a dangerous, claustrophobic tale that sets the bar high for contemporary Romanian cinema. —Dilcia Barrera
