Acasa, My Home
Director: Radu Ciorniciuc Run Time: 86 min. Rating: Not Rated Language: Romanian
In the wilderness of the Bucharest Delta, an abandoned water reservoir just outside the bustling metropolis, the Enache family lived in perfect harmony with nature for two decades, sleeping in a hut on the lakeshore, catching fish barehanded, and following the rhythm of the seasons. When this area is transformed into a public national park, they are forced to leave behind their unconventional life and move to the city, where fishing rods are replaced by smartphones and idle afternoons are now spent in classrooms.
“The film is at its most moving when it lingers on the face of children who are impotent to return to the world they used to call home.” ~ Diego Semerene, Slant Magazine
