A founding member of the Romanian New Wave, director Cristi Puiu returns with Malmkrog, a historical drama billed as "Downton Abbey meets Dostoyefsky."

Based on the work of Russian philosopher Vladimir Solovyov, Malmkrog sees a group of guest assemble over Christmas at a 19th century manor house, where they engage in debates over a variety of topics.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Guests arrive at the mansion of aristocratic landowner and man of the world Nikolai over the Christmas holidays. Among them are a politician, a young countess and a general with his wife. They converse and dine – what a wonderful, much-missed way of life – indulge in parlour games and discuss politics, progress, morality, death, and the Antichrist. As the debate becomes more heated, cultural differences become increasingly apparent and the mood grows tense. In the end, everyone will become a victim of his or her own discourse.
