A small city in Northern Romania: despite growing debts and a complicated personal life, police detective Florin Iespas is determined to solve a hard case that no one else seems to care about. Ordered to put down the file, the cop continues his off-the-record investigations, soon turning up a strong lead for two hotel fires that resulted in several deaths. The suspect is Bănel, a security guard of Roma descent, but he denies everything. Faced with the refusal of the police chief to support his inquiry, the mistrust of his colleagues, and his own inner demons, Florin resorts to extraordinary measures to achieve a form of justice. Under the surface of a sharp, tightly woven mystery, UNIDENTIFIED is a seething neo-noir touching on police corruption, prejudice, and toxic masculinity.

Reviews

  • "A dark, propulsive thriller...."
    Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
  • "Bogdan George Apetri takes the viewer for what looks like a slow ride and ultimately hits the brakes hard with a surprise ending. Unidentified ... succeeds as a neo-noir making a gloomy statement about society."
    Maria Dybcio, FIPRESCI
