Police, Adjective (2009)

Country: Romania
Director: Corneliu Porumboiu
Stars: Dragos Bucur, Vlad Ivanov, Ion Stoica

Cop busts a kid for weed. Feels bad about it. Thinks about it so much, he begins to think he busted the wrong guy. And then things go Kafka in this Romanian inquisition into the absurdities of language and bureaucracy disguised as a police procedural. The characters are cops, but it's all a big joke. Life is the punchline and we're condemned to live it, one euphemism at a time.

Guys, I think maybe communism really did something bad to the Eastern Bloc.
