BALANȚA DE LUCIAN PINTILIE PRECEDAT DE “FILMARE/FILMAGE” DE GABRIEL COSUTH SI INTRODUCERE DE MARIN KARMITZ Les Films de Cannes a Bucarest 2018

FILMARE/FILMAGE


Directed by: Gabriel KOSUTH

Country: ROMÂNIA

Year: 1992

Length: 67 minute

Genre: documentary



“Directed during the filmmaking of the famous work Balanța – Filmare/Filmage succeeds being more than a simple making of. Just like the title suggests, the filmmaking of Balanța is the context for the birth of a new creation... A team of almost one man – Gabriel Kosuth – creates a powerful documentary. By recording weeks in a row, with plenty of sensitivity, adding the director’s work with the actors, and the excruciating road of a passionate team, the spectator comes closely to understanding the mystery of Pintilie’s oeuvre.”

Bucharest, 1988. Nela, a young schoolteacher, takes care of her father, a former colonel with the Securitate – as he dies. His will is that his body remains to be used by medical science. No one wants his body as the refrigerators at the University aren’t working. Nela leaves for a teaching job in a provincial town. There she meets Mitică, a doctor at the local hospital, who, like Nela, won’t accept to compromise and is full of dreams and optimism. They disturb everyone by their attitude but they survive the harshness of reality, as if touched by a kind of grace.
