Hot Romanian cinema @ Toronto International Film Festival TIFF 2009

There is a decent sample of Romanian movies this year at Toronto International Film Festival.


I warmly recommend all of them. These young directors/actors/camera people  are truly able to turn a regular story in powerful cinematic moments.

You will laugh and cry, and understand more on why your Romanian buddy at the office never stops talking about life behind the Iron Curtain.


A simple “Romania” search on festival’s website returns this:
