Winner of the 2006 Camera d’Or prize at Cannes, this sociopolitical satire focuses on a group of characters who, on December 22, 2005, commemorate the 16th anniversary of Ceausescu’s fall. What seems like a formally simple and straightforward story is actually a sophisticated and wryly funny reflection on the scope of the Romanian Revolution of 1989 that ended communism in Romania. The title refers to the exact time of day in which Ceausescu fled and roughly translates as “Was There or Wasn’t There?,” referring to whether the city was or was not part of the revolution, a central question being hotly debated throughout the film.
