“A Charming Girl
, the result of the collaboration between Lucian Bratu and Radu Cosașu, is an interesting product of the Romanian cinema of the second half of the `60s: an intellectualist film, with plenty of dialogue, with characters who have chic
jobs, interests or life styles, with a spirit that owes a great deal to the new wave of the French cinema of those years and to other new, fresh tendencies of western cinemas of those days”, Andrei Gorzo says.
Éducation à l’image
is a programme destined to the high school students in Bucharest, which is meant to familiarize them with the author films and the art cinema, with watching films in cinema and to offer them some basic tools to interpret the specific language (both artistically and technically), turning them from passive consumers into active viewers.
Every year, the Éducation à l’image
programme brings three proposals, following this formula: one film from the Romanian cinema, one from the French cinema (chose in partnership with the French Institute) and one from the international cinema. For the school year 2017-2018, the chosen films are: A Charming Girl
(directed by Lucian Bratu), The Royal Tenenbaums
(directed by Wes Anderson) and Bande de filles
(directed by Céline Sciamma).
