Corneliu Porumboiu presents THE TREASURE at the Toronto International Film Festival 2015

Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu was warmly received last night at the Toronto International Film Festival 2015, with his most recent movie The Treasure.

He was here in Toronto before, but the presenter had some great words about Corneliu.

This was the second of three projections for THE TREASURE at TIFF 2015, on the evening of Thursday 17 September 2015.

The room was packed.

Watch below:

THE TREASURE is a lighthearted fairy tale with effervescent humour and a Robin Hood-ian twist (brilliantly closed at the end of the movie).

Toronto audience laughed and applauded numerous times during the film.

Two neighbours set out to unearth a buried treasure in their own backyard, in this delightful fusion of contemporary fairy tale and political parable from Romanian New Wave master Corneliu Porumboiu (Police, Adjective).
