Film ‘The Phantom Father’ in Meeting Point Cinema

ro_movieOn 16 May, citizens of Sarajevo will have the opportunity to see the last film of the Week of European Film. The film to close the week is the Romanian film called ‘The Phantom Father’ directed by Lucian Georgescu and starring Marcel Iures, Barry Gifford, Mihaela Sirbu.

A tender and nostalgic homage brought to a past era, The Phantom Father combines stylistically the postmodern and classical cinema, assisted by superb photography, a haunting soundtrack and great performances.Unique, yet symbolic, this is the story of an American professor of Jewish descent who is compelled to turn his back on a successful career and get on the road that takes him through danger, the unknown and the surreal, back to the roots to reclaim his identity. The quest takes the hero, masterfully portrayed by Peter Greenaway and Francis Ford Coppola actor Marcel Iures, back to the Old World that rewards our traveler with a double love story. On the one hand he finds romantic love, on the other the passion for old cinema, nomad, popular, naïve and generous.

The film will be shown in Meeting Point Cinema at 8 p.m. and the entrance is free for all.
