Radu Muntean's widely acclaimed drama unfolds against the catastrophic effect of adultery upon a marriage. Successful, 30-something banker Paul is married to Adriana and has a daughter Mara, but is having an affair with the younger Raluca, the girl's dentist. In the days before Christmas, Paul realizes it's time to choose between one of his two lives.
A fixture on many 'Best Films of 2011' lists, Tuesday, After Christmas is an astutely observed, deeply felt drama showcasing the strengths of current Romanian cinema in its beautifully calibrated performances, expert craftsmanship, and dazzling technical mastery. Further evidence of director Radu Muntean's place at the forefront of contemporary filmmakers.

It's a powerful and accomplished piece of work. There's no music. Scenes often unfold in real time using a fixed widescreen camera and without editing. The opening, for example, showing the lovers casually chatting playfully on a bed, lasts over seven minutes without feeling like it. Another early long scene with the main characters in Raluca's surgery crackles with awkwardness. Several times the camera remains on Paul while the person he's talking to is kept off screen, emphasizing his feeling of alienation, such as a scene in which Adriana asks for a foot massage: we see her feet on Paul's lap but at no point are we shown the rest of her.
Unlike many films of marital break-up, especially Bergman's, which have a strong theatrical, histrionic element to the proceedings,'Tuesday, After Christmas' is quietly realistic. The scene in which Paul tells Adriana about his six-month affair with Raluca feels 'true to life' and is all the more heart-wrenching for it.
This is an immensely watchable film, superbly acted and unfussily directed. The 2.35:1 image is blemish-free. The single 17-minute extra is an interesting informal interview (in English) with the director. In short, another excellent Second Run DVD.
