DIRECTOR: Calin Peter Netzer - ROMANIA

Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival, this dark tragicomic exposé chronicles the efforts of an overly protective and domineering mother, Cornelia, who uses all of the means at her disposal to keep her reckless adult son, Barbu, out of jail when he is accused of killing a child in a drunken hit-and-run. Cornelia is an educated, wealthy woman, an architect by trade, who views her privilege in Romanian society as a right that extends to her son; she has no qualms about offering bribes or coercing the police and witnesses to lie. But the impassive Barbu, increasingly resentful of his mother’s domination and bullying, comes to realize that he has a say in his fate too. This year’s Romanian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (112 mins.)

Filmography: Maria (03), Medal of Honor (09).

Sponsored by the Romanian American Society and the Portland-Iasi Sister City Association.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature.
