A husband’s subtle depression from a family growing apart becomes the trigger to a stoically executed killing spree. Aurora is a 2010 film starring and directed by Crisit Puiu. Simple synopsis can be read as follows (via Cannes):

“An apartment kitchen: a man and a woman discuss Little Red Riding Hood, their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room.

A wasteland on the city’s outskirts: behind a line of abandoned trailers, the man silently watches what seems to be a family.

The same city, the same man: driving through traffic with two hand-made firing pins for a hunting rifle.

The man is 42 years old, his name – Viorel. Troubled by obscure thoughts, he drives across the city to a destination known only to him.”

The trailer can be viewed down below:
