Graduation

15 yrs 128 minutes 2016 7.4

Romeo Aldeas has done everything possible to give his daughter Eliza the best possible conditions. Now, only the final test remains before she can get her scholarship and move abroad to study at Cambridge University. But one day she is assaulted. She doesn’t get any serious damages, but the experience makes it difficult to focus on the test. Romeo knows that he can take advantage of his role as a doctor to gain ahead in society, but then he has to enter a labyrinth of bureaucracy and lies. "Graduation deepens into a film about ethics and morals where social corruption stands against individual responsibility," writes Maria Domellöf-Wik in GP and rates the film 4 out of 5. She continues: "Abuse of power and a widespread immorality inherited down in generations is blunted here by Cannes winner Mungiu."
