8 Best movies & tv shows from Romania to watch so far in 2017

Until the mid 00’s, Romanian films were curiosities at international film festivals. After the fall of dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu in 1989, the country’s film industry (and cultural environment at large) needed time to recover and adapt.

In 2006, Corneliu Porumboiu’s masterpiece ’12:08 East of Bucharest’ was awarded with a Golden Camera at the Cannes Festival, which led to a so-called eruption of Romanian cinema. The Romanian New Wave was a fact. Many international successes followed, with movies such as ‘The Way I Spent the End of the World’ (2006) and ‘4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days’ (2007).

Up to this day, Romania has one of the most interesting cinematic climates of Europe. This list is a sort-of compilation of the very best Romanian movies that came out recently. Enjoy!
