Mel talks to Writer and Director Calin Peter Netzer about his film ‘Child’s Pose’. This film won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival this year and is now premiering here in London at the Bfi’s London Film Festival. CHILD’S POSE is a touching film about how we can suffocate our children with maternal love, and on the marks that parents leave on their offspring’s personalities. We chatted about the state of Romanian cinema and how he managed to create such a palpable tension between Cornelia (Luminita Gheorghiu) and her son, Barbu (Bogdan Dumitrache).
CHILD’S POSE will be released by STUDIOCANAL in cinemas on 1 Nov and on DVD on 16 Dec / Cert: TBC / 112 mins
Tues 15 Oct, 20:45 at the BFI NFT 1
