Mr. Lazarescu is Dead

You might have seen The Death of Mr. Lazarescu, one of the most unforgettable films I saw last year. It follows the last hours of an old man who needs urgent medical care.

If you did, you saw Romanian actor Ion Fiscuteanu do some extraordinary work.

Alas, Mr. Fiscuteanu passed away Saturday in Bucharest at 70.
