Calin Peter Netzer, the Golden Bear winner (Child's Pose, CinEast 2013), triumphed once again at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival with his latest film Ana, mon amour (Silver Bear for outstanding artistic contribution), an adaptation of Cezar Paul-Badescu's acclaimed novel (Luminita, mon amour).

The film offers a close look at a modern young couple, each of whom struggles with emotional problems, and traces their turbulent relationship for a decade. Toma and Ana meet while they are both studying literature at university. Ana has a mild neurotic disorder and suffers from panic attacks. Toma follows her to every dark corner she ends up in and appears to be in control of the couple's relationship. When Ana overcomes her fears and adapts to the outside world, Toma finds himself alone, trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together and understand the whirlwind that he has gone through.

Ana, mon amour is a compelling drama, sparking all the emotions through its window on love and how it disintegrates.

 

Awards:

Berlinale IFF 2017 (Silver Bear)

Ana, mon amour est un drame émouvant et captivant, se penchant discrètement sur l'amour et le processus de sa désintégration, tout en analysant en profondeur les émotions qui l'accompagnent. On suit un couple contemporain (Ana et Toma) qui, pendant une dizaine d'années, traversent différentes étapes de leur relation jusqu' à la rupture.
