“Tudor Cristian Jurgiu makes a quietly impressive debut with this deceptively simple tale (Japanese Dog) of a father and son. Handsomely shot to privilege nature’s prime position in rural life, this (...) tale, told in beautifully self-contained scenes (...), boasts a sterling performance by Victor Rebengiuc, the best-known Romanian actor of his generation, in a role of unassuming dignity.” (Jay Weissberg, Variety)
