Trailer for Police, Adjective, which screened at the 2009 Vancouver International Film Festival.

Cristi is an undercover cop who spends a lot of his time on the beat in Vasilu, Romania, walking and watching--seeking out the truth but filtering it through his own perceptions. Seen in long shot for lengthy takes, he's casing out a potential drug dealer, and periodically summarizing what he's seen, highlighting certain things, leaving out others: we literally see the words of his reports appear onscreen, the odd typo included. Cristi is conscience-wracked, having been presented with a scenario that doesn't match his reality--the kid he's tailing is probably not a drug dealer, and to arrest him would lead to pointless jail time.
