The second film that we saw at the Bermuda Internation Film Festival was called "The Death of Mr Lazarescu". It is a Romanian film about an old man who becomes ill, and the troubles that he goes through trying to convince family, friends, neighbours, medics, and hospital staff of the seriousness of his condition. In the BIFF program is was described as a "dark comedy", although it is a little light on the comedy. There were some funny lines here and there, but the film did not have an overall comedic feel. I thought the acting perfomance of the old man was very good. He was very believable - one third of the way in you forget that he is acting, he is actually a sick and dying man. However, even the excellent acting perfomance was not enough for me to say that the film was enjoyable. It was slow and tiresome, mostly, and the fact that is was 2.5 hours long (and started at 9pm) did not help in this regard.
