The 13th ROMANIAN FILM FESTIVAL IN LONDON:
TOGETHER AND APART
10 – 14 November 2016, Curzon Soho Cinema
(99 Shaftesbury Avenue, London W1D 5DY)
“A five-star study of grubby bureaucratic compromise. A masterly, complex movie of psychological subtlety and moral weight, about the shabby choices people make as they claw their way up.” (The Guardian)
Opening Gala - Thu 10 Nov., 6.10pm, Curzon Soho
Followed by Q&A with lead actress Maria Dragus, hosted by writer Ian Haydn Smith
Internationally acclaimed director Cristian Mungiu returns with a powerful and universal study about the imprecision of parenthood, the relativity of truth and the ambiguity of compromise, revealed by a father-daughter relationship. A unique and uncompromising vision.

TOGETHER AND APART is a phrase which may describe the relationship between two partners as they twist and twirl through the intimate movements of a dance. The phrase may also speak to the condition of the Romanian diaspora, divided by distance, united by history and family ties. Most powerfully, though, the phrase hints at the relationship between nationalities, you and me, separated by time and space, but bound together by our fears and hopes for the future.
