Transcript

Collective (MA) - 109 minutes

Graft and corruption of a magnitude the likes of which I haven’t seen.

That is the subject of an astounding Romanian documentary.

The immorality reaches into the highest echelons of the health system, killing patients who would otherwise survive.

And we’re not talking about the Middle Ages.

This just happened – in the past few years (30th October 2015 to be more precise) and it took an investigative reporter, Catalin Tolontan, and two of his colleagues, Irela Neag and Razvan Lu Ac, from a sports newspaper to blow the whistle.

Collective is a truly remarkable piece of work directed, shot and co-edited by Alexander Nanau.

It shines a blowtorch on a system that is rotten to its core.

It also paints an unedifying portrait of people supposedly in the business of helping others who are merely out to feather their own nests in the most heinous of ways.

Rated MA, Collective scores an 8½ out of 10.
