The Land That Time Forgot Sottotitoli Rumeno

The initial idea for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days was inspired by an anecdote from Communist Romania that director Cristian Mungiu had heard.[21] Though he had heard it from a friend 15 years prior to the film, the incident occurred five years before that, in 1987, a date that Mungiu noted in the screenplay.[22] Mungiu, himself a decrețel (born in the time of Decree 770),[11] wanted to create a serious film focusing on the true story, which still affected him and felt tragic more than 15 years later.[21] He conducted interviews with others who lived through the period, to determine if the experience was common.[22] Aside from the anecdote, depicting the 1980s in Romania was appealing because he remembered the time, and "The attraction is for the stories that I know from that period. They belong to me. They belong to my generation".[23] He hoped that basing the story on a factual account would also distinguish it from previous Romanian films:

On its international release, the film became partially viewed through the lens of the abortion debate, with Emma Wilson writing in Film Quarterly that IMDb user reviews were highlighting this and comparing it to Juno.[89][n 4] Wilson observed 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days displayed the aborted fetus, comparable to the U.S. anti-abortion movement's use of such images, but argued the film was closer to pro-choice ideology in its focus on the law's harm to women. Wilson further argued that the true point was the loyalty of the two characters.[89] Mungiu said the fetus shot was not linked to the anti-abortion movement, as Romanians did not commonly use these depictions and the abortion debate was no longer prominent there.[36] Anti-abortion protests comparable to those in the U.S. or Ireland did not occur in Romania until 2005, when the Orthodox Church commented on the matter.[20] Mungiu also declined to state his position on abortion, and said he attempted to keep his film and his personal position separate.[91] Scholars Oana Godeanu-Kenworthy and Oana Popescu-Sandu argued the film was simply about communism, and the minimalism allowed for foreign audiences to see what they wanted, including a statement on the abortion debate.[45]

In The Australian Feminist Law Journal, Fiona Jenkins interpreted the story as a morally ambiguous argument that safe abortion services should be allowed, but that Otilia telling Găbița they will never talk about the matter reflects her "trauma not only of what she has undergone but what she has done".[93] Peter T. Chattaway, writing for Christianity Today, opined that "The abortion itself is handled in a way that could be seen to support both sides of the abortion debate", given the abuse to women, but also the portrayal of "the procedure's bloody aftermath".[94] Writer Waltraud Maierhofer also interpreted it as "not simply for or against abortion". Maierhofer commented a woman will consider many things in making a choice, including health, finances and what the potential child would face. In a discussion with Adi, Otilia indicates she would not be ready to enter a marriage and raise a family. Găbița's reasons are never said; it can be presumed she made the decision herself, though Maierhofer wrote at times she appears "irresponsible".[12]

Mungiu reportedly planned 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days to be the first in a loose series of films titled "Tales from a Golden Age".[104] Mungiu explained that "the golden age of Romania" is a term used nationally for Ceaușescu's final nine years in power, though he said people then suffered "shortages and hardship".[14] He intended to make six short films under the banner "Tales from the Golden Age", and then allow younger directors to take over the series.[105] In 2009, he released a single film called Tales from the Golden Age, following 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days in depicting the Ceaușescu era and starring Vlad Ivanov.[106] His next film, Beyond the Hills (2012), similarly depicted Romanian extremism, and Mungiu was inspired to make the cinematic adaptation after seeing the stage version in New York while promoting 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.[107][n 5] The 2020 film Never Rarely Sometimes Always was partly inspired by 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days.

Thanks for replying so soon and sorry for my typos in the previous comment. I usually read the ingredients but this time I was looking at the fat content (4% is all you can wish for), and curd size, and once I found the large size 4% I was happy enough and forgot about the rest! Even the organic kind might have added stuff to it.. It would have been pointless to try draining that thing, they add thickening agents which I am not even trying to spell, and other chemicals . If I keep the oil at lower temps they don't get dark but the inside remains uncooked, that's my problem with regular dough (gogosi) as well (actually I did try it with tis batch and had them in the oil for less than 5 mins for sure, but still ended up with nasty bits of carbon on them, perhaps using 5 inches of oil instead of 2 would have been better....I guess practice makes better, and I need to do some research about what oil is best for frying, they have all kinds of blends on the shelves here in teh US. Still not a fan of frying things but once in a while, if done well, it's worth the effort..or maybe I should just forget all about it and go visit Romania more often! 041b061a72
