A few days before Christmas, having quit his job in Germany, Matthias returns to his multi-ethnic Transylvanian village. He wishes to involve himself more in the education of his son, Rudi, left for too long in the care of his mother, Ana — and to rid the boy of the unresolved fears that have taken hold of him. He’s preoccupied with his old father, Otto, and also eager to see his ex-lover, Csilla. At the small factory that Csilla manages, a handful of immigrant workers are hired to do the work no locals are interested in — and the ostensibly peaceful and calm community is torn asunder as its underlying racism and economic resentments boil to the surface in Romanian New Wave auteur Cristian Mungiu’s (4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS and BEYOND THE HILLS) chilling, universally relevant parable of the dangers of malignant nativism.

“Blending jittery naturalism with thrilling showdowns and even a surreal climax, R.M.N. is Mungiu's most fully realized work since 4 MONTHS” —Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“Effective and maddening...more suspense thriller than procedural." —Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine

"A compelling slow burn drama morphs into something akin to a Western." —Phil de Semlyen, Time Out

"Another very special film from this exceptionally gifted and thoughtful (and extremely angry) director.." —David Jenkins, Little White Lies
