    Romania rules at Cannes
    Harrowing tale of illegal abortion and women steal spotlight as film festival wraps up



    Romanian director Cristian Mungiu accepts the Palme d'Or from Jane Fonda for his film 4 Luni, 3 Saptamini Si 2 Zile (4 Months, 3 weeks and 2 days), during the awards ceremony at the 60th International film festival in Cannes yesterday.

    The message from the Cannes Film Festival juries was clear: Romania rules.


    In its closing ceremony on yesterday the festival bestowed two of its most important prizes on Romanian films, affirming the vitality of this recently emerging cinema. The top award, the Palme d'Or, went to Cristian Mungiu for 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, an unsparing yet humane look at life during the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu.


    Additionally the jury for Un Certain Regard, a sidebar to the main competition, gave its highest honour to California Dreamin', a first feature by Cristian Nemescu set in Romania during the Kosovo war of 1999. It was a poignant victory, because Nemescu died in an automobile accident last year at the age of 27.


    The audience in the Palais des Festivals was audibly delighted by Mungiu's victory. His film, shown early in the festival, had enjoyed ardent critical support from the start. It follows the ordeal of two female university students as one tries to help the other obtain an illegal abortion. Harrowing and brilliantly acted, the movie presents a stark image of life under totalitarian rule without political grandstanding or sentimentality. At times it feels like a horror movie. Through meticulous formal control, Mungiu generates almost unbearable suspense and also shows, in sometimes graphic detail, the consequences of abortion and also of banning it.


    While most of the other awards went to films that had received wide critical acclaim, the biggest surprise of the evening was the Grand Prix (the second prize, in spite of its name) for The Mourning Forest by the Japanese director Naomi Kawase. A quiet film, full of nature imagery, about a woman who goes to work in a retirement home after the death of her child and befriends an old man, The Mourning Forest played late in the festival as momentum seemed to be flagging.


    Another head-scratcher was the best actor award given to Konstantin Lavronenko for his stone-faced performance in The Banishment, a Russian film directed by Andrei Zviagintsev, who accepted it on the actor's behalf. One of many films in the competition to explore themes of religious faith, The Banishment had not roused great passion among critics.


    One film that did arouse passion -- both negative and positive -- was Carlos Reygadas' slow and sublime Silent Lig

    Probabil ar trebui sa-l intrebam pe cel care a facut programul pe baza caruia functioneaza acest forum de ce nu apar diacriticele corect. Noi nu avem nici o posibilitate de a repara acest neajuns din pacate.[img]smileys/smiley18.gif[/img]
