The Fixer

Inspired by actual events, this 2016 drama tells the story of a "fixer" (Tudor Istodor) hired by a French television crew to guide them through Romania in search of a young prostitute who's been repatriated from France. The film unfolds seamlessly, with a brisk tempo and a cool, gray look that match its straightforward depiction of the crew's wheeling and dealing. Much of the story revolves around ethics and how far the insecure protagonist will go to prove himself to the others as a journalist. Adrian Sitaru, directing a script by Adrian and Claudia Silisteanu, seems to be building toward some explosive revelation; it never comes, though the climax and conclusion, focusing on the protagonist's moral and ethical growth, are quietly satisfying. In French and Romanian with subtitles.
