The Death of Mr. Lazarescu

The last night in the life of an old drunk.

Over the course of a single night, an aged drunk falls ill, is tossed carelessly from hospital to hospital, and dies alone. As depressing as it sounds, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu is really much more, said Peter Rainer in The Christian Science Monitor. Our elderly Romanian pensioner sees the whole of the human condition in one night, encountering good people and bad, exhausted caretakers and snobbish nurses. 'œIt's an overwhelmingly powerful epic that lays bare the best and worst of which humans are capable.'
