Aurora is the story of the fall of an ordinary man, set in contemporary post-Communist Romania. We follow protagonist Viorel, played by Puiu himself, as he wanders around Bucharest for one long day. With extremely long takes, elliptical narrative and dry humour, this slow-burning tour de force is a study of what moves us to commit the ultimate act.
