Independenta Film will distribute in Romania eight films presented at the 67 International Film Festival in Cannes, as follows: five selected movies from the official competition, one that will run out of competition, another film that took the Un Certain Regard award, and a movie from the feature section, Quinzaine des Réalisateurs.

Movies Maps to the Stars, Deux jours, une nuit / Two Days, One Night and Jimmy’s Hall will be released in Romania in the fall and winter of 2014.

The complete list of movies from Cannes 2014 that will be projected in Romania are:

Deux jours, une nuit / Two Days, One Night, d: Jean-Pierre şi Luc Dardenne, with Marion Cotillard

Synopsis: The film follows Sandra, a young woman assisted by her husband, who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues to give up their bonuses so that she can keep her job. (provided by IMDB)


Adieu au langage/Goodbye to Language 3D, d.: Jean-Luc Godard

Synopsis: The idea is simple: A married woman and a single man meet. They love, they argue, fists fly. A dog strays between town and country. The seasons pass. The man and woman meet again. The dog finds itself between them. The other is in one, the one is in the other and they are three. The former husband shatters everything. A second film begins: the same as the first, and yet not. From the human race we pass to metaphor. This ends in barking and a baby’s cries. In the meantime, we will have seen people talking of the demise of the dollar, of truth in mathematics and of the death of a robin. (provided by IMDB)


The Search, d.: Michael Hazanavicius, with Annette Bening.

Synopsis: A woman who works for a non-governmental organization (NGO) forms a special relationship with a young boy in war-torn Chechnya. (provided by IMDB)
