DO NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH FROM THE END OF THE WORLD

NU ASTEPTA PREA MULT DE LA SFÂRSITUL LUMII
Croatia, France, Luxembourg, Romania | 2023 | Radu Jude

DO NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH FROM THE END OF THE WORLD film still

In the exhilarating, idea-filled new satire by Radu Jude (Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn), an overworked and underpaid production assistant in Bucharest prepares a workplace safety video for a multinational company. But when a participant in the movie makes an unacceptable statement during the shoot, the beleaguered filmmaker is compelled to re-work his story in a manner consistent with the company's narrative. Variety‘s Jessica Kiang proclaimed Jude’s comedy her favorite film of 2023, writing “Of all the silly movies, smart movies, angry, boring, funny, sad movies, sentimental, stirring, nutso, epic, intimate, direct, contorted, arch, sincere, sweet and salty movies this year, only this one is all of the above. Go ahead and try to expect too much from it. You can’t.” “With thrilling dexterity and acerbic wit, [Do Not Expect…] finds a way to mock crass commercialism, cultural misogyny, corporate greed, worker exploitation, bigotry, social media hate, and the many systems and forces conspiring to crush us all.” –Daily Beast. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 163 min.
