2 Episodes

’Tis the season for infidelity as a pair of husbands and fathers living double lives discover that duplicity is particularly devastating during the holidays. The roots of Lynne Ramsay’s woozy, richly impressionistic style are on display in her early short GASMAN, in which a father brings his children along to a Christmas gathering where not everything is as it seems. Then, as the holidays loom, a middle-aged man finds himself forced to choose between the stability of his family and the excitement of a relationship with a younger woman in Radu Muntean’s TUESDAY, AFTER CHRISTMAS, an emotionally layered anatomy of an affair from one of the leaders of the celebrated Romanian New Wave.
