Who doesn’t love the films of Nae Caranfil? A director combining the best of the two sides of filmmaking, Caranfil is an established Romanian author that makes films loved by the audience and appreciated by the critics. Something not very easy to accomplish.
“6.9 on the Richter Scale” is his most recent film and we are excited to be able to screen it in premiere in The Netherlands.
It is the story of a humble Romanian actor in his 40’s, hardly surviving between a complicated part in a musical show, a depressed wife, and the obsession of an imminent, devastating earthquake. On top of everything, he also becomes the victim of his manipulative father.
But don’t let yourselves be fooled by the dramatic description, this is a full-fledged comedy!
Nae Caranfil made his feature film debut “E Pericoloso Sporgersi” in 1993 and returned in 1996 with “Asfalt Tango”, a road movie comedy starring none other then international diva Charlotte Rampling.
His biggest critical and box office success was brought by the movie “Filantropica”, the story of a poor school teacher played by Mircea Diaconu who falls in love with a captivating, but materialistic young beautiful woman. The movie became a cult film of the early 2000’s and to this day it is one of the most referred to Romanian comedy’s.
