We are thrilled to support the international premiere of ’The Last Day’ (Ultima zi), a people’s favourite in Romania, in the presence of director Gabriel Achim and screenwriter Cosmin Manolache. The gala screening will close the Discovery section of the East End Film Festival at Rich Mix on June 18th.
A long and winding journey full of twists and turns, the film stars a veritable who’s who Romanian cinema – Doru Ana, Mimi Brănescu, Adrian Văncică and Rodica Lazăr – and was made on a shoestring budget. Nevertheless, Achim’s film is laden with atmosphere, gripping drama, droll humour, and some very important dogs. Powerful, independent filmmaking from the next great Romanian auteur. (East End Film Festival)
A commanding and intellectually gratifying work from a director worth keeping an eye on. (Little White Lies, The five best films from the Transilvania International Film Festival)
This independent dark comedy won the Romanian Days award at the Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF) in 2016 and closed the European Film Festival in Bucharest in May 2017.
