Directed by Radu Jude • 2012 • Romania
The sophomore feature from one of eastern Europe’s most provocatively talented filmmakers, Everybody in Our Family is a caustic, comedic look into the heart of familial darkness. When divorcé Marius (Șerban Pavlu) arrives to take his young daughter Sofia (Sofia Nicolaescu) on holiday, his ex-wife’s refusal to relinquish the girl sets off a whirlwind of confrontation. As this comedy of divorce congeals into something altogether more bitter, Jude plumbs the depths of his hapless protagonist’s self-pity, with alternately hilarious and harrowing results.
