Soirée Roumanie: Festival de la Francophonie

March 23, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Event Navigation

In 1911-12, the Romanian movie director Grigore Brezianu and the financial tycoon Leon Popescu made a 2-hour long movie “Romania’s Independence” – a faithful screen adaptation of the 1877 Independence War. Now, “Restul e tacere” tells us, in a loose and half-fictionalized way, the story of this movie making.

“The Rest Is Silence” comes like a breath of fresh air at a time when it’s easy to assume, from fests’ picks, that (currently “hot”) Romanian cinema is all grungy, DV-shot, miserabilist dramas. Lively, witty widescreen costumer, about the making of the country’s first feature-length movie, this is an intelligent crowd-pleaser made with affection for its characters and era.
