. Shooting started in Bucharest at the beginning of last week and is expected to wrap on 16 August.

Rumeno revolves around Radu (Alexandru Potocean), a young man who returns to his Romanian family after working for one year in Italy. He is warmly welcomed by his wife Monica (Ada Condeescu) and his small son, Luca, but both seem very different. The estranged couple try to spend a night together in order to reconnect, but will their endeavour be as simple as expected? “The film's characters try to answer the question: 'How can you stay close to the ones you love?',” announced the team behind Rumeno in a press release.

It is Strada Film's fourth collaboration with Condeescu, after Florin Serban's If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle [+see also:
