Sunday at Six

In this 1965 debut feature by Lucian Pintilie, a member of Romania's socialist underground (Dan Nutu) falls for a spunky new recruit (Irina Petrescu) whose inexperience leads to tragedy. The story of youthful idealists hounded by an oppressive government links this to American counterculture movies, though the elliptical narrative, jump cuts, street filming, and long tracking shots are more reminiscent of the French New Wave. The naturalism of the lead actors as well as the extras gives this a timeless quality, and Radu Caplescu's lively score wittily comments on the action. In Romanian with subtitles.
