THE TREASURE (Romania/France, 2015) Corneliu PorumboiuTreasure

In this comedy, Costi and his neighbor Adrian join forces to dig for treasure supposedly buried in the garden of Adrian's dead grandfather's country house. But it's soon made clear that any treasure they find may be declared state property. The plot of land they are digging in is literally full of the history of modern Romania, beginning with being located in the town where the 1848 Proclamation of Islaz was declared in an attempt to break away from Russian and Ottoman authorities, through the Communist takeover. 2015 Cannes Film Festival, winner: Un Certain Regard; 2016 Gopo Awards (Romanian Oscars), winner: Best Feature Film, Directing, Actor, and Screenplay.
