- Spring brings six domestic releases in less than a month

The month of Romanian cinema

If in previous years Romanian distributors concentrated the releases of domestic films in autumn, this year they appear to have reconsidered - March can be considered 'the month of Romanian cinema', with as many as six releases over the course of a few weeks.

(photo). Winner of the Golden Bear at this year's Berlinale, the Parada Film production takes advantage of a great hype caused by its recent festival success and is expected to be one of the most successful domestic releases of 2013.

On March 15, it's high time for A Farewell to Fools, a Family Film Production film directed by Bogdan Dreyer. The stars are Gerard Depardieu, Harvey Keitel and Laura Morante. Inspired by the novella Ipu's Death written by Titus Popovici, the film is set in a small Transylvanian village during World War II. When a German soldier is killed, the Germans threaten to shoot ten villagers if the small community does not turn in the killer. Promising him legendary funerals, the villagers try to convince Ipu (Depardieu), the village fool, to turn himself in, but their plan is not easy to accomplish with such an uncontrollable hero.

Finally, Adrian Sitaru's Domestic comes on March 22. Inspired by the director's shorts, the 4 Proof Film production centres on a group of people who live in the same apartment building and whose lives are affected by their pets.
