Millennial generation at its average seen through the eyes of a random girl. Money. Fame measured in Likes. Clubbing, youth and lust. Chat, webcam, selfies and betrayal. Love and cyberporn.
These subjects strongly coagulate into a contemporary story about a Romanian teenage girl named Larisa (Ana Maria Guran) who craves popularity and appreciation in a thugs-crowded world. Love seems to be the trigger that provokes Larisa to actually step into the nowadays neighborhood-like disgusting abyss in order to gain everything she wants. A big FUCK YOU to us and to life itself.
“Larisa wants a lot from life: money, power, influence, popularity and respect. Now that she is in love she will do anything for that” – IMDB. In other words, I expect to see an authentic Romanian version of “The Bling Ring”, with a little bit more drama and violence.
The World is Mine (ro: “Lumea e a mea”) is an independent drama written by Raluca Mănescu and represents the directorial debut of Nicolae Constantin Tănase. The casting is almost exclusively amateur, most of the actors starring for the first time in a film.
The movie will hit the big screens on 23rd of October. Check out the movie’s official Facebook page. See also this list of events and reserve a place for the before/after release screenings all over the country.
