Romanian filmmaker Şerban Marinescu is completing Tanti, a contemporary drama from a script written by Mircea Daneliuc.
Mihai Orăşanu, who is producing with MDV Film, told FNE that Tanti focuses on a middle aged woman who falls for a much younger man, with a social canvas as backdrop.
The film is co-produced by Marius-Giuliano Doman and Tandem Film (www.tandemfilm.ro). The budget is €700,000.
Tanti received a €270,000 grant from National Centre for Cinema (www.cncinema.abt.ro) in 2006, and is also supported by McCann Errickson (www.mccann.ro) and United Media Corporation S.R.L..
The main character is played by Cecila Bârbora, who is surrounded by a cast of young actors.
The movie will be released in 2009. The Romanian distributor is MDV Film; international distribution and sales are still under negotiation.
