Morgen, by Marian Crisan @ Romanian Cinematheque

08/11/2012 @ 1 Belgrave Square, London

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session via skype with director Marian Crişan.

The Romanian Cinematheque presents in November one of the most critically-acclaimed Romanian films in the last few years, the masterpiece Morgen, directed by Marian Crişan. One of the most important films in the new Romanian wave, Morgen won numerous awards at important international film festivals, such as Locarno, Thessaloniki and CinEast Luxembourg, as well as the prize for the best feature film at TIFF in Cluj.
Morgen was Romania's entry for the Foreign Language Film Oscar Award this year.

The production represents a dramatic story of friendship that transcends the barriers of language and culture. While gone fishing one day, Nelu, a simple man living a monotonous life in a small border town encounters a Turkish emigrant trying to cross the border illegally, in an attempt to reach Germany. Nelu soon finds himself caught between the norms of society, embodied by the border policemen, his wife’s disapproval and the wish to help his new friend. Eventually, in spite of the communication issues they encounter, Nelu accommodates his friend in his house, where he decides to help him cross the border the next day, reassuring him with the only word he knows in German: morgen.

The trailer of the film can be seen here.
