An unexpected delay leads to a brief encounter between two people in this short drama from filmmaker Cătălin Mitulescu. A businessman is trying to make his way across town for a meeting when he gets caught in a traffic jam. The man already has plenty on his mind after learning his young daughter has fallen ill, and his mood is growing sour when he spies an attractive woman in her early twenties selling soft drinks to the drivers waiting for traffic to clear. The businessman impulsively asks the soda girl out for coffee, and they briefly get to know each other while he waits for his day to start up again. Trafic won the Palm d'Or for Best Short Film at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

Marilena de la P7 / Marilena from P7 (Romania 2006)

directed by Cristian Nemescu, short drama, 45 min, eng subtitles

with Aura Călărașu, Mădălina Ghițescu, Gabriel Huian, Cristi Olesher, Gabriel Spahiu, Andi Vasluianu




Andrei, a 13 year old teenager, living in the outskirts of Bucharest, one day decides to steal a trolleybus in order to impress Marilena, a prostitute he fell in love with. Things you do for love...

"Besides telling the story, the film also makes a cross-section of the life in the suburbs of Bucharest at the beginning of the 21st century, with no intervention whatsoever on most of the locations and extras. The handheld camera shooting style offers the opportunity to capture details and genuine background elements that enforce the "documentary" atmosphere of the movie.

"It's a film about feelings and not about the Romanian reality. What was important and innovative for me was to concentrate on the feelings of a teenager, his problems and his understanding of the world around him."
