Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses more recent various developments in the Romanian film industry. Between 2003 and 2007, interesting creations emerged from young, previously unknown creators of the Romanian New Wave, benefiting from previously non-existent shooting and production facilities. Within the Romanian film industry, established auteurs such as Dan Piţa, Mircea Daneliuc, Mircea Mureşan, Dinu Tănase and Nicolae Mărgineanu continued to be active, but unfortunately did not always manage to keep the same high artistic standards as in the past. In terms of themes and style, stories about the corrupt Bucharest mob, prostitution at home and abroad, suicide, rape, adultery and illegal trafficking have been filling the centre stage, with little or no stylistic innovation.
