Graduate of the Academy of  Theatre and Film "I.L.Caragiale" (year 1994). “As early as  my college years I made, besides the yearly student exercises, the documentary Lindenfeld’ 94, the sad story of a German village in Romania, with three people left in it (that hated each other) and, in collaboration with the Visual Arts Foundation, another film-testimony that I won’t dare call a pamphlet,They Are Ours Too, about the contemporary descendants of the illustrious Bratianu family. Between 1994-1996 I worked within the film studio of the Romanian Television. It was there that I made The Tragic Love Story of the Two. I had the ambition to shoot it all in one single take. And it very much seems that I succeeded with this film. It had a remarked path in international festivals (Biarritz, prized in Hanover etc). Still in the film studio of the Romanian Television I made the short The Geraniums - one piece of the impossible love stories cycle written by Marius Sopterean. Since 1996 I’ve been working in advertising .”(CINEMA magazine, Oct 2002)

Radu Muntean about himself
 “I promised myself that , if I were to be in the trade business, it’ll be advertising and I’m in it since long ago and if I were to do film then they will have to express a point of view” (Re: Publik 2006)
 “I make films because I have something to say and I know how to do it.When I will cease believing in it, I’ll stick to advertising and I’ll be quite relaxed about it”( Re:Publik, 2008)
