In the Romanian crime drama Miracle, Bogdan George Apetri’s gripping, genre-subverting procedural divided into two parts, the driving question is not Whodunnit? but rather who are these people and what is the nature of their entanglement?

When a novice — the young, beautiful Cristina Tofan (Ioana Bugarin) sneaks away from an isolated convent in rural Romania to mysteriously attend to urgent matters, Apetri withholds key information about her motives as we follow her enigmatic journey, allowing tension to steadily build to a wavering precipice. Miracle’s second part follows Marius Preda (Emanuel Pârvu), a determined inspector retracing Cristina’s steps days after her departure. Here, the narrative opens into both gripping police thriller and devastating social commentary, as Marius gradually uncovers clues and revelations leading not only to the unfathomable truth behind Cristina’s mysterious actions, but possibly, to an actual miracle as well.

The DVD includes the following bonus features:

  • Commentary by director Bogdan George Apetri
  • Bonus Short Film— A Very Small Trilogy of Loneliness (Director Bogdan George Apetri
