PRODUCTION: From Love With Best Intentions goes into postproduction

Iulia Blaga 2010-11-04

From Love With Best Intentions, the second feature by Adrian Sitaru, has concluded filming after one month and one day of production, producer Ada Solomon told FNE. Postproduction will take place in Romania at Chainsaw Europe (www.chainsaweurope.com) and in Hungary.

Sitaru's film was inspired by his own life. The main character is a young man (played by Bogdan Dumitrache) usually in control, confronted with the sudden illness of his mother. The films follows him for four days, as he rushes to his hometown and tries to do the best for his mother. Sitaru calls it a growing-up kind of film.

Ada Solomon and HiFilm (www.hifilm.ro) are producing. Cor Leonis Films (www.corleonisfilms.hu) from Hungary is co-producing, and Monica Lăzurean-Gorgan and 4Proof Film (www.4prooffilm.ro) are co-producing from Romania.

Sitaru wrote the script as a Cinéfondation resident at the Cannes Film Festival (www.festival-cannes.com) in 2008. The project received a development grant from the National Centre for Cinema (www.cncinema.abt.ro) and a production grant of €135,000 (545,000 RON) in August 2008. The project also participated at CineMart, at the Rotterdam Film Festival (www.filmfestivalrotterdam.com). The €750,000 film received €110,000 from Eurimages (http://www.coe.int/t/dg4/eurimages).

Stylistically, the film is using the same point of view (POV) as Sitaru's first film, Angling, but it was shot mainly in interiors in Bucharest and Miercurea Ciuc. The DOP is Adrian Silişteanu (Angling). The cast includes Nataşa Raab, Marian Râlea and Alina Grigore. Andrei Gorgan is editing. The local premiere is set for Autumn 2011.
