THE WAY I SPENT THE END OF THE WORLD
(Feature film, 2006, Romania/France, in Romanian with English subtitles, 106 min.)
Dir.: Catalin Mitulescu

Bucharest 1989 - The last year of Ceausescu’s dictatorship. Eva (Dorotheea Petre) lives with her parents and her 7-year-old brother Lalalilu. She is 17 years old, very attractive and caught up in the turmoil of falling in love for the first time while struggling to come of age. Eva has a secret dream she shares only with her brother: escaping from Romania and travelling the world. Lalalilu is devastated at the idea of losing his sister. With Tarzan and Silvica, his best friends from school, he devises a secret plan to kill the dictator so that Eva can stay and live in a free country. Dorotheea Petre was awarded the Best Actress Prize at Cannes Film Festival in 2006. Catalin Mitulescu’s debut film was one of the most popular films in the Awards Buzz Category at the Palm Springs International Film Festival this January.
