Police, Adjective (Politist, adjectiv)

Tasked with pursuing a schoolboy suspected of supplying marijuana, a young policeman becomes troubled by the clash between duty and instinct. The struggle he undertakes with his conscience and his superiors provides an intriguing, philosophical allegory; but most delightfully, it's played with warmth and humour, and an extraordinary investment in the detail of its characters' lives.

Jan. 22, 2009 - Boston.com - Wesley Morris, Globe Staff

Certain movies provoke critics to plead with an audience to be patient. It’s a pitiful but sometimes necessary last resort. “Police, Adjective,’’ from Romania, is a case in point. This startling, shrewd film rewards your loyalty with its wry intelligence. The usual emphasis in a detective film is upended so that procedure, thrillingly, is more important than action. In its own way, this is one of the most intense cop movies you’ll see.
