Film : 4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days

Two best friends have 24 hours to make the ultimate choice.

In Romania, thousands of women died because they chose abortion. Thousands of women didn’t, and countless children were put into orphanages. Abortion was illegal under communism in 1980s Romania as contraception was impossible to get. This film explores the emotive issue of women’s rights and the emotional rollercoaster the girls experience as they make a choice between life and death.

The film is slow moving but with some very intense scenes, and the characters are developed well. I was disappointed with the abrupt ending and felt this could have been handled better. It’s still a film that’s worth seeing – if you like the European style. 113 minutes.
