'Monsters' Follows a Day in the Life of a Broken Marriage (Exclusive Berlin Trailer)

'Monsters' Follows a Day in the Life of a Broken Marriage (Exclusive Berlin Trailer)
Romanian cinema has long been a focus at the Berlin International Film Festival, highlighted by Adina Pintilie's 2018 Golden Bear winner Touch Me Not and Calin Peter Netzer's Child's Pose, which won Berlin's top prize in 2013.

Romanian films were shut out of this year's competition, but aiming to fill the festival's Bucharest gap is the drama Monsters, from first-time writer-director Marius Olteanu. Like all the best of Romanian cinema, Monsters is a proudly intellectual work, examining questions of societal and gender norms through the simplest of settings: 24 hours in the life of a married couple.

Locarno 2018 Review: Alice T., Romanian Cinema in Reinvention

Contemporary Romanian cinema has established its steady presence in world cinema after the new wave boom. New talent emerged this year at Berlinale, where Ioana Uricaru introduced Lemonade, while experienced filmmaker Radu Jude netted the top honor at this year's Karlovy Vary International Film Festival for I Do Not Care If We Go Down in History as Barbarians. Locarno is no stranger to Romanian cinema; the Swiss gathering presented testosterone dramedy Charleston last year and brought the much expected, most recent effort by Radu Muntean, Alice T.. Following Tuesday, After Christmas and One Floor Below, the Romanian filmmaker returns on the festival circuit with a story co-penned by Razvan Ratulescu, the co-writer of the iconic The Death of Mr. Lazarescu and Child's Pose, and Alexander Baciu...

Berlin film festival honours eastern European movie-makers

Two low-budget films, one from Romania and the other from Bosnia, take top prizes for portrayals of post-communist life

Eastern European film-makers basked in the limelight at the weekend after two low-budget pictures snapped up the top prizes at Berlin's international film festival.

The Berlinale's first prize, the Golden Bear, was awarded to a quasi-documentary-style Romanian film, Pozitia Copilului, or Child's Pose, directed by Calin Peter Netzer, a standard-bearer for the critically acclaimed new wave of film-making in his country. Starring Luminita Gheorghiu in a fearsome performance, the film tells the story of a mother's desperate and often illegal attempts to save her son from prosecution after he knocks down and kills an impoverished teenager.

Netzer said it reflected the "moral malaise of Romania's corruption-ridden middle classes". It also fitted the festival's penchant for delivering contemporary social drama with a strong political message.

Southeast Europe Rules at This Year's Berlinale Awards

This year's Berlinale top winner: Romanian drama Child's Pose The 2013 Berlin Film Festival's top prize, the Golden Bear, was handed out at a ceremony earlier this evening. The winner was Calin Peter Netzer's Child's Pose / Pozitia copilului, co-written by Netzer and Razvan Radulescu. The Romanian drama depicts the travails of a rich, controlling mother's efforts to buy freedom for her selfish son, who, in a traffic accident, has killed a child from a poor family. Little regard is shown for the victim's family, while local authorities (much like those elsewhere, for that matter) are all too eager to side with the wealthy and powerful. (Pictured above: Los Angeles Film Critics Association 2006 Best Supporting Actress winner Luminita Gheorghiu in the Romanian drama Child's Pose.) In Child's Pose, The Death of Mr. Lazarescu's co-star Luminita Gheorghiu plays the domineering mother, Bogdan Dumitrache is her submissive son, while 4 Months, 3 Weeks and

Romania's 'Child's Pose' takes Golden Bear at Berlin, David Gordon Green gets Best Director
The Berlin Film Festival awards ceremony is about to get under way, and your guess is as good as mine about what films will take the gold from Wong Kar-wai's jury -- "Gloria" remains the critics' favorite, but I can easily see Bruno Dumont, Danis Tanovic, Ulrich Seidl, or one of the many Competition films I didn't get around to catching, beat it to the Golden Bear. I'll be posting the winners as they're announced after the jump.  Competition Awards Golden Bear: "Child's Pose," Calin Peter Netzer Grand Jury Prize: "An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker," Danis Tanovic...

Child's Pose wins Golden Bear

Romanian drama Child's Pose (Pozitia Copilului) has won the Golden Bear for best picture at the Berlin Film Festival.

Calin Peter Netzer's film stars Luminita Gheorghiu as an overbearing mother who tries to use her position in society to help her son dodge jail after he kills a child while speeding.

The Grandy Jury Prize Silver Bear went to Bosnian drama An Episode In The Life Of An Iron Picker (Epizoda u životu berača željeza), directed by Danis Tanović. The film's star Nazif Mujić - a 'non-actor' who plays a version of himself in the film about living on the fringes of Bosnian society - also picked up the Silver Bear for acting. The actress Silver Bear went to Paulina Garcia for her role as an isolated divorcee in Chilean drama Gloria, directed by Sebastian Lelo.
