Child's Pose is a 2013 Romanian drama film on DVD, directed by Călin Peter Netzer.

60-year-old Cornelia leads a life of privilege, social power and material wealth, but life is not perfect. More than anything in the world, she longs for her adult son Barbu to reciprocate her affections. But the pair barely speak, something the domineering Cornelia blames on Barbu’s live-in girlfriend.

The balance of power irrevocably shifts one evening when Barbu is involved in a tragic car accident and runs down a child on a highway. Cornelia is thrust back into his life and, seeing her chance to regain control, she commences a frighteningly well-orchestrated campaign to save her son from prison.


Child's Pose Film Reviews

“An astonishing gem. A diamond-hard thriller, dramatically coiled around a viciously brilliant turn from Luminita Gheorghiu. Among the year’s most essential films.” The Observer

“One of cinema’s most domineering mothers. A powerhouse drama.” Garry Maddox, The Sydney Morning Herald

“Stunning. As brilliantly portrayed by Gherghiu, Cornelia is a real piece of work. Don’t try to understand her, but just try to take your eyes off her. Highly recommended for lovers of exemplary world cinema.” Leigh Paatsch, The Herald Sun

“Brilliantly crafted. The premise is a noir standard, but as things develop, the story goes beyond the thriller genre, into deeper waters: the suspense narrative leads to a spiritual crisis. A gripping drama” The Guardian

“Stunning. A ferocious psychological drama with the pace of a thriller.” The Los Angeles Times
