Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #51. Calin Peter Netzer’s Ana, Mon Amour

Ana Mon Amour

Director: Calin Peter Netzer
Writers: Calin Peter Netzer, Cezar Paul Badescu

Romanian director Calin Peter Netzer won the Golden Bear at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival, his third feature. He’s been working on his follow-up, Ana, Mon Amour since 2014, one of his country’s most expensive local productions, with funding also coming from France and Germany. Telling the story of Ana and Toma’s dysfunctional relationship, caused partially by Ana’s mental illness, Netzer aims to chart the differing perspectives of their troubled union.

Cast: NA

Production Co./Producers: Parada Film’s Oana Keleman, Sophie Dulac Productions

U.S. Distributor: Rights available TBD (domestic/international)

Release Date: Production was scheduled to begin in the second half of 2015 for a period of ten weeks, with another round of funding announced for the project in October from Eurimages. It’s doubtful Netzer would be ready in time for Berlin, but his status as a Golden Bear winner should elevate his chances for a Cannes premiere.
