Four Months, Three Weeks and Two Days

This story is simple, quiet and direct, and because it manages to retain such a dignity and continuity it's impact is devestating. The production values are so inobtrusive because such care has gone into developing the mise en scene, the performances and the choreography of the cinematography; together, all help achieve the remarkable restatement of: how profoundly unfair women's experiences have been and are -- and how the politics of our bodies orient us to the world.
