R.M.N. is what they call an MRI brain scan in Romania, a crucial plot point in this commentary on modern, multi-ethnic Romanian life. In a mountainous Transylvanian village, Csilla, a Hungarian woman, manages a bakery paying minimum wage. The locals think this work is beneath them and believe they can do better abroad. When Csilla hires migrants from Sri Lanka, the trouble begins. Cristian Mungiu, the father of the Romanian New Wave, paints a multilayered portrait of xenophobia, passion, and civic lunacy.
