Aristocratic landowner Nikolai invites a group of esteemed guests to spend Christmas at his luxurious Transylvanian mansion. Fine dining, parlour games, and political discussions take centre stage, but as debates become more heated, cultural differences become increasingly apparent and the mood grows tense. A pensive period drama, adapted from the 1900 Russian novel War and Christianity, by Romanian filmmaker Cristi Puiu (The Death of Mr Lazarescu). Winner of the Best Director prize at 2020's Berlin Film Festival.
