That Was Day Four

What better way for the film-lover than to spend a Sunday afternoon watching an excellent film in a great cinema?

This was exactly what a good number of people decided to do by coming over for the fourth day of the Romanian Film Festival in London at Renoir Cinema. And our film-lover friends were in for a treat, as they had the chance to take part in a screening of Periferic by Bogdan George Apetri. The film was followed by a Q&A session with lead actress Ana Ularu, run by Ramona Mitrica (Festival Director) and Mike Phillips (Festival Consultant).

Periferic, with its strong story, superb editing and direction, and a wonderful performance from Ana Ularu, complemented to perfection by the film’s cast, proved once again that “Romanians can’t make a bad film. It’s, like, illegal in their country” (Steven Zeitchik).

Like all good things, though, the Festival also needs to near its conclusion. The last screening is a special presentation of Calin Peter Netzer’s Medal of Honour, at the EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development), in the heart of the City. The film features a superlative performance from one of the best-loved Romanian actors, maestro Victor Rebengiuc, who will be present for a preceding reception and a Q&A.

This event is already fully booked – a big thank you to all. Here is a trailer:
