2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Bogdan Mustata’s Wolf

#90. Bogdan Mustata’s Wolf

Gist: Featuring 2013 Shooting Star selected Ada Condeescu (Mustata co-wrote Loverboy which she also starred in) this is about a 16-year-old teen named Wolf, who lives with his mother in an apartment block in Bucharest. One day, Clara shows up in his neighborhood, deliciously interrupting his adolescent ennui. At the same time, Wolf’s deceased father makes a disturbing comeback.

Prediction: If our predictions turn out to be somewhat accurate, then the 2013 edition could contain a trio of items from Romania put unlike the Un Certain Regard trajectory that the Cannes selected Loverboy followed, I’m thinking that his drama might end up being bumped into the Director’s Fortnight section. The project was selected for the 2011 edition of the Cannes L’Atelier, and it’s currently well into the post-production phase so My is looking good.
