Original title: Urma
Director: Dorian Boguță
Romania, 2019
Drama, policier / 105 min.

Spiral is a debut film, a psychological drama, a reflection on letting go of the past and on how life and nature’s cycles are connected.


A young man has disappeared; his sister and his girlfriend are mystified. The film accompanies two policemen as they investigate: collegial jokes, the everyday monotony of the work and, now and again, new leads. The missing person was fatally ill and yet he obviously wanted to make a mark before his departure. By any means necessary, as ultimately proves to be the case in this laconically captured psycho-drama.
