A cop (Dragos Bucur) decides to cut a kid a break by not busting him on a minor drug charge, and then faces the consequences: a long, exquisite dressing-down by his stickler of a superior (Vlad Ivanov, from 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days), during which the very essence of police work is analyzed with a beady eye and a challenging raised eyebrow. This award-winning, darkly funny story of ethical choice, linguistic pedantry (hence the title, Police, Adjective), and mordant Eastern European sensibility is yet another outstanding little movie in the exciting Romanian New Wave.

CODE OF ETHICS Dragos Bucur stars as a cop with conscience (and a love of grammar) in Police, Adjective (Marius Panduru)
