Puiu, Porumboiu, Muntean and the Impact of Romanian Film Minimalism
This chapter focuses on three of the most important representatives of the minimalist trend in Romanian cinema: Cristi Puiu, Corneliu Porumboiu, and Radu Muntean. Two authors are largely responsible for the creation of the minimalist model: Cristi Puiu and screenwriter/novelist Răzvan Rădulescu, from whose incisive and metaphysical writing technique almost all the important recent films originate. Puiu's films include Marfa ş i banii (Stuff and Dough, 2001), a road movie with a distinctly a documentary flavor. Porumboiu's films include Pe aripile vinului (Gone with the Wine, 2002) about a young peasant seeking to get away from what clearly appears to be an uneducated, vulgar, alcoholic milieu. Muntean's films include Furia (Fury, 2001), which was meant to be an authentic expression of his own fury, his rage against the violence and boorishness reigning in post-Communist Romania.
