In Radu Jude’s (Aferim!) provocative Golden Bear-winning comedy, schoolteacher Emi finds her career and reputation under threat after a personal sex tape is leaked on the Internet. Forced to meet the parents demanding her dismissal, Emi refuses to surrender to their pressure. Filmed entirely during Bucharest’s lockdown, BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN delivers an incendiary mix of unconventional form, irreverent humor and scathing commentary on hypocrisy and prejudice in our societies. Romania’s Oscar® entry for Best International Feature Film.

Rated NYT #2 Best Movie of 2021 & European Film Award for Best Director and Best Screenwriter

“From its hard-core opening to its riotous conclusion, this category-defying Romanian film captures the desperate, angry, exhausted mood of the present almost too well. A Bucharest schoolteacher (the brilliant, fearless Katia Pascariu) finds her job endangered after a sex tape she made with her husband goes semiviral. Meanwhile, the Covid pandemic and simmering culture-war hostilities turn everyday life into a theater of grievance and anxiety. Holding everything together — barely — is the abrasive intellectualism of Jude’s direction and the earnest rage that fuels his mockery.”
– A.O. Scott for the New York Times
