“‘Child’s Pose’, a Romanian drama about a domineering mother using her social position to try to save her son from jail, won the Golden Bear for best picture at the Berlin film festival on Saturday. The movie, directed by Calin Peter Netzer and starring Luminita Gheorghiu in the central role, had been among the favorites for the coveted prize, which extends the remarkable success of Romanian filmmakers on the European festival circuit.”

Outstanding result for the Romanian cinematography at the prestigious film festival in Berlin. Florin Şerban (not even Romanian cinefils know who he is) won not one prize, but two:
The Silver Bear – The Jury Grand Prix
The Alfred Bauer Prize, “awarded in memory of the Festival founder, for a work of particular innovation”
with the movie “Eu când vreau să fluier, fluier” – “When I want to whistle, I whistle”.
More about Florin Şerban, here (in German). More about the movie, for those who like to read ahead, here (in German too). Still waiting for English language reviews and bio – the guy is completely unknown in the “outer world”, but that is likely to change. Will update when available. Meanwhile, for Romanian speakers or hardcore film fans willing to use google translator, more info in Romanian here.
