Trailer watch: Cannes favorite Aurora

Aurora looks like a simple enough tale with new genre twists.

Cristi Puiu is the man behind the Romanian New Wave which really took over the imagination of star directors like Cristian Mungiu. Cristian made 4 months 3 weeks and 2 days after watching the powerful The Death of Lazarescu directed by Cristi. Now he has come out with another 3 hour film called Aurora. It has the festival people ringing.

Once again he gets into the form of the miserable. Cannes was going berserk after the screening of this film. It happens in an Apartment kitchen: a man and a woman discuss Little Red Riding Hood their voices hushed, mindful of waking the little girl sleeping in the next room.

A wasteland on the city’s outskirts: we see a man who is watching a family for some reason. Nothing is really clear in all this. Now you can also see the same man shooting the family and this is why I can’t stand trailers. The man is a 42 year old man named Viorel and he drives across the city to a destination known only to him.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
