The Death of Mr. Lazarescu in October
Tartan Video have announced the UK DVD release of The Death of Mr. Lazarescu for 23rd October 2006 priced at £19.99. Mr Lazarescu is a grouchy widower. Mr Lazarescu lives in squalid conditions in Romania with his cats. Mr Lazarescu is not feeling well. Mr Lazarescu has to be taken to hospital immediately. And so begins his epic journey by ambulance from hospital to hospital. One doctor after another examines him and passes over treatment. Outpatients are teeming with casualties and doctors are full of opinions. The events play out in ‘real time’ and whatever his undiagnosed illness is, Mr Lazarescu’s health is deteriorating whilst the situation becomes graver and more absurd with every passing minute.
Cristi Puiu’s stirring The Death Of Mr Lazarescu has generated unanimous praise internationally and has garnered stellar reviews since winning the Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes.
