FLEFF Sneak Peek:  Romanian New Wave!

03/24/2012

Contributed by Patricia Zimmermann

FLEFF has been intoxicated with the cinematic rigor, exquisite acting, and unrelenting realism of place and space of the Romanian New Wave--it epitomizes microtopia.

We’re proud to announce we are screening Tuesday After Christmas by Romanian filmmaking legend Radu Muntean,  thanks to FLEFF collaborative partners Kino Lorber International.

Two screenings ONLY:

Thursday, March 29 at 7:30 at Cinemapolis

Friday  March 30 at 9:10 at Cinemapolis.

Admission charged.

Tuesday After Christmas screened at the Cannes Film Festival, then the New York Film Festival, and now the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival.

 

 

Tuesday After Christmas  (Radu Muntean, Romania, 2011; 99 min.)

The Romanian New Wave of the past decade has yielded such internationally acclaimed gems as 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu and 12:08 East of Bucharest. Add to them Tuesday, After Christmas, an elegant, emotionally resonant drama of a middle-class couple whose 10-year marriage is rocked by the husband's illicit affair with their daughter's sexy dentist. In many respects it's an oft-told tale: Paul must choose between the easy rapport and stability of his family life and the uncertainty and excitement of a relationship with a much younger woman. The fact that the two leads are actually a married couple adds to the verisimilitude.

The 15th Annual Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, exploring the theme of Microtopias, runs march 25-April 1, on the Ithaca College campus and downtown at Cinemapolis.
