I have wanted to post this one for years, as it's a film that will positively destroy you, it's so sad. It was never available in the US until now, where it is currently streaming free on Plex. JustWatch listing.

This is perched on that knife's edge where you are simultaneously saddened and outraged.

It's a very Romanian movie. The attachment of Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days) as producer should tell you what you need to know about how bleak this is.
