THE WAY I SPENT THE END OF THE WORLD
[Cum mi-am petrecut sfarsitul lumii]

2006 Oscar Submission from Romania for Best Foreign Language Film

Official Selection, 2006 Toronto Film Festival

In Bucharest, during the last year of Ceausescu's dictatorship, 17-year-old Eva and her boyfriend accidentally break a bust of Ceausescu at school. When Eva is expelled and flees Romania, her 7-year-old brother blames Ceausescu and devises a plan to kill the dictator. Director Mitulescu's remarkably deft hand with atmosphere and characterization produce a confident and perceptive film that speaks eloquently to Eastern European history and the human passions for family and curiosity.
