Aurora (2010) DVD9
Inside a non-descript apartment kitchen, a man and a woman discuss the inconsistencies in Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room. Behind a line of abandoned trailers, on the outskirts of Bucharest, the same man waits for something or someone to arrive. At a metallurgical factory, he collects two hand-made firing pins secretly prepared by a coworker. The man's name is Viorel. He is 42 years old, divorced, a father of two young girls, and today he will carry out a plan that will bring order to his world.

Romanian filmmaker Cristi Puiu ("The Death of Mr. Lazarescu") is the writer-director of this three-hour experimental crime drama that turns out to be an intriguing philosophical character study of an ordinary man we follow for about one and a half days and try to piece together from the little back story supplied why this supposedly good citizen is driven to commit a premeditated murder of four people in such a cold-blooded manner.
