A close female friend highly recommended the movie “4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days” to me a while back and I finally got around to it on Netflix this week. Watched it with Honey last night. Well, actually, he lasted about half way. I watched the whole mess.
First off – never, ever, watch an Indie Romanian film about illegal abortion. I mean – it doesn’t even sound tempting, right? Almost like someone asking if you want to go see a french mime troupe, or pull your own wisdom tooth, right? But since my friend said it was so good, I went for it.
I kept watching, waiting for some part of plot, or one of the characters to start developing, thinking if only I watched a bit more I would get the payoff. Sadly, no. No payoff. STAY AWAY I SAY! And I have some talking to do with my friend.
