Euraw Stories screens The Treasure

THE TREASURE
ROMANIA 2015
Comedy 1'29 min 
Language: Romanian + English subtitles

Director: Corneliu Porumboiu
Cast: Toma Cuzin, Adrian Purcarescu

A hunt for a buried treasure sends two men on a surprising comic caper in this Cannes prize-winning charmer from acclaimed director Corneliu Porumboiu (Police, Adjective; 12:08 East of Bucharest). Costi (Cuzin Toma) is a workaday family man whose cash-strapped next-door neighbour (Adrian Purcarescu) makes him an intriguing proposition: help him find the fortune reportedly buried somewhere on the grounds of his family’s country home and split the profits. But as the two men dig, they unearth more than they bargained for. Part modern day fable, part profound social commentary, The Treasure confirms Porumboiu’s status (previously seen at Euraw Stories in 2016 with East of Bucharest) as “one of our great contemporary observers of the human comedy” (Variety).
