Plot Summary
Young detective Cristi (Dragos Bucur) is pursuing drug peddlers in post-Communist Romania.

Unwilling to pursue Victor, Cristi tries to scrap the case, jeopardizing his career in the process and fueling the suspicions of his superiors.

  • This cunning and provocative Romanian film requires patience, but its rewards are many: It's hard to imagine how a scene in which a police captain barks an order to bring him a dictionary can be loaded with suspense, but, really, it is. show more

  • The movie comes on like a put-on--next to nothing happens for an excruciatingly long time--and ends as a fascinating dialectic between following one's conscience or following the law. show more

  • Police, Adjective has considerable power, and the issues it raises linger in the mind. show more
