Set in the 1940, Sunday at 6 has an intentionally mysterious, nonlinear narrative which traces the arc of a romance between two Communist revolutionaries who find their mutual affection at cross-purposes with the interests of "the Party"—a juxtaposition of individual and national identities that Pintilie would revisit throughout his career, and which has proved a dominant subject of interest for Romania's New Wave directors. (The Village Voice) Sunday at 6 has a contemporary style which so upset the censors that he could not make his second film, Reenactment, until four years later.
Directed by Lucian Pintilie, Romania, 1965, 35mm, 83 mins. In Romanian with English subtitles.
