Late Christian Nemescu portrays a poignant East European feel in his film.
25 August 2009 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

This unique Romanian short film has an inherent East European feel to it which can be felt and seen in the early works of many great filmmakers of the region such as Krzysztof Kieslowski.It is remarkable to note how buildings have been portrayed and shot by Christian Nemescu. They give us an idea of what must be going on inside them especially at a time when people come out in open to have a different life.Although "Poveste La Scara 'C'" is set in Romania,it remains a film with universal appeal as its central theme related to an ordinary middle class family can take place any where in the world.The highlight of this film is its depiction of things which can keep a family united.Romanian director Christian Nemescu has also done a good job with his preference for feelings of young people.This will surely be noticed by youngsters wherever this film is going to be screened. "Poveste La Scara 'C'" is quite an important film for film critic Lalit Rao as he is fortunate to be counted as one of the few people in this world who own a DVD of this film sent by none other than this film's director Christian Nemescu some months prior to his untimely demise in a car accident.This sad event took place before the official release of his first feature film "California Dreaming".
