Iulia Blaga 2009-10-20

After Angling/Pescuit sportiv, Adrian Sitaru is preparing his second feature, From Love With Best Intentions/ Din dragoste cu cele mai bune intenţii, a story about growing up in contemporary Romania.

He wrote the script as a Cinéfondation resident from Cannes Film Festival (www.festival-cannes.com), in 2008, after receiving a development grant from the National Centre for Cinema (www.cncinema.abt.ro). The treatment and concept also participated at CineMart, at the Rotterdam Film Festival (www.filmfestivalrotterdam.com). The script won a production grant of €135,000 (545,000 RON) from the Romanian National Centre for Cinema in August 2008.

Ada Solomon and HiFilm (www.hifilm.ro) are producing. Marie Pierre Macia and Juliette Lepoutre from MPM Film (Movie Partners in Motion Film) are the French co-producers, while Monica Lazurean Gorgan and 4Proof Film (www.4prooffilm.ro) are co-producing from Romania. Foreign co-producers are sought in order to fill the €650,000 budget.

The film follows the experience of a successful young man, Alex, who is facing the unexpected illness of his mother. He tries to deal with it the best he can, but he finally has to accept that he has no control. "This is an experience we all have. We all try to fight and do the best we can, and sometimes all we do is useless," the director says.

Sitaru continues his collaboration with the DOP Adrian Silişteanu (Angling). No cast has been selected as of yet. Shooting will start in May 2010 at the latest, and will wrap after 4 weeks. The film will be shot in Bucharest and Deva, producer Ada Solomon told FNE.
