cannes 2010 – those romanians…

“Romanians can’t make a bad film. It’s, like, illegal in their country. Or at least not in their DNA.”

*
stiu romania se prabuseste, dar macar sa ne scufundam zimbind ca – uite – unul de-al nostru ridica usor capul din noroi si straluceste.
filmul lui radu muntean – marti, dupa craciun – a fost vizionat astazi la cannes si cronicarii straini au inceput sa scrie. de foarte bine.

This year the streak continues — and perhaps gets even stronger — with “Tuesday, After Christmas,” an infidelity drama from a director named Radu Muntean who’s been here several times before. We caught his new movie, in the festival’s Un Certain Regard section, at its Thursday press screening and were close to blown away. Muntean’s movie is a remarkable, pitch-perfect work, as convincing and affecting a portrayal of the subtleties of modern life and marriage as you’ll find on the screen.
(…)
No U.S. distributor has yet bought this movie (or the other, equally promising Romanian film here, “Aurora,” from the same director as “Mr. Lazarescu”). While “Tuesday, After Christmas’ ” subject manner and style are eminently accessible to an American audience (it helps that, unlike a lot of the new Romanian cinema, this one is set not in the 1980s Communist period but the modern one, in a decidedly middle-class milieu; Romanian film characters have moved up in the world), we fear that the rocky commercial market for these kinds of dramas will scare off buyers. It won’t matter. The Romanians will keep making great movies, whether or not we turn out to see them.

2 filme romanesti la Cannes – Un Certain Regard- 2010

astazi au fost anuntate filmele din selectia oficiala a Festivalului de Film de la Cannes, 2010.
In sectiunea Un Certain Regard au fost inclusi si doi regizori români, Cristi Puiu- cu Aurora si Radu Muntean cu Marti, dupa Craciun.

cu riscul de a-l face pe domn Puiu sa se incrunte la gindul “da’ de unde?”, vreau sa spun ca am citit scenariul de la Aurora si abia astept sa vad filmul.

Radu Muntean e unul dintre regizorii mei favoriti asa ca nu pot decit sa ma bucur pentru el.

altfel, sper din tot sufletul ca baga cineva de seama ( domn ministru al culturii? doamna ministra a turismului?) ca romanii nostri merg la cannes in grup de multi ani si ca asta e o mega imagine pe care o aduc tarii asteia.

ar fi cazul sa fie sprijiniti mai bine acolo…

Cannesul a fost unul din locurile in care am fost mindra ca sunt romanca.
anul trecut cind jurnalistii aflau ca sunt romanca, imi zimbeau larg si se porneau pe laude pentru Politist, Adjectiv, iar eu le primeam cu mega bucurie de parca as fi muncit eu la filmul ala.

sunt rare ocaziile astea, cind se vorbeste si de noi de mega bine…
dati-l incolo de “land of choice”…
