One of the central figures to emerge from the cinema of the Romanian New Wave, director Radu Muntean has created in TUESDAY, AFTER CHRISTMAS a tense, emotionally resonant drama about a middle-aged man caught between his commitment to his family and his affair with a younger woman. Paul and Adriana (played by Mimi Branescu and Mirela Oprisor, who also happen to be a couple in real life) are the happily married couple whose ten-year marriage is rocked when Paul falls into an illicit affair with his daughter’s sexy dentist. Through beautifully calibrated performances and scorchingly intense long takes, the drama unfolds as Paul is forced to choose between the easy rapport and stability of his family life and the uncertainty and excitement of a relationship with a much younger woman.
