Cult Musical Comedy 'Veronica' @ Romanian Cinematheque

27/10/2012 @ 1 Belgrave Square, London, SW1X8PH

Romanian Cinematheque in London pays tribute to the timeless musical classic Veronica, the most famous children's film in the history of Romanian cinema. Raised to a cult status by generations of young viewers who grew up thrilled by the adventures of Veronica, the film follows an adorable orphan girl on a fantastic journey that teaches her the meaning of courage.

Written and directed by the laureate director Elisabeta Bostan in 1972 and featuring some of the all-time stars of Romanian screen, beautifully choreographed and designed, the film became one of the Communist era blockbusters and generated a string of sequels and imitators. As fresh as it was at the time of releasing, the film still hasn't lost its power to enchant young and old alike.
