Viata de zi cu zi a unui cuplu de batrani, documentata timp de un an in stil pur observational, devine un film despre timp, viata si moarte, o lectie de inocenta, fericire si seninatate si – nu in ultimul rand – o incredibila poveste de dragoste.

ENGLISH VERSION

A bittersweet love story. Where “sweet” is the love (after 55 years of marriage), “bitter” is the lack of time left for the “sweet” (the old age), and “story” is the everyday life. A film about the ancestral, pure way of living and loving. A cinematic, observational, sometimes voyeuristic look at a way of life and a life itself, both, almost extinct.

Andrei Dascalescu Born in Piatra Neamt, Romania, in 1984; graduated Film University in Bucharest, Editing and Sound class; worked as editor and sound engineer on many films, including Francis Ford Coppola’s Youth Without Youth (as Walter Murch’s assistant); produced and directed FLY, a 2 minute feature, selected in 13 festivals (including Cinemed Montpellier 2008) and awarded 2 times; organizes the short film festival Filmul de Piatra in his hometown, Piatra Neamt; Constantin and Elena is the documentary and feature-length debut.

Constantin and Elena was awarded the First Appearance Award at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) 2008, Best Debut Award in Transilvania International Film Festival (TIFF) 2009 and was nominated for Best Documentary at the Gopo Awards (Romanian Film Industry Awards) 2009.
