Why this movie?
Because it was needed!
It is necessary that people from today's generation know how it was truly in the past,because  people who do not know the past can not build the future today.

 

Impressions after the premiere ...
Those who impressed me were the young people who said, "Lord, now we understand our parents." People from all over Romania ...

 

It is a shocking film ...
I didn't whant to shock. Rather it is more lenient than the actual reality that was much worse. Realism is a matter of style, like shooting. The budget does not influence the style.

 

Why have you not filmed in location? Romania still retains the former political prison ...
There is no space to film in real prisons. Cell is two for two, what to do there? The universe is restored on the  plateau exactly as it was. It was a great luck that we found metal doors. 15 doors. The architect  munted them on the wall, these basic sounds I could not never do, this sounds could not be found in American bases.

 

Is the film a testimonial on behalf of the dozen of anonymous who went through the same situation?
The novel (no - after which the film was adapted) is a true story. The film is a true story. Generally everything is done intentionally.

 

For young people today ...
As passionate cinema-goers to see movies. You have no references!, What if  your only 20. Polanski made a great movie when he was 20. If you whant cinema, go and find it .There are   cineclubs there are tapes. Now there is everything..You can find everything on the internet.

 

About the title ...
Unfortunately this is a mess of intestines. Red Gloves is translated from the German game "Fried." But it didn't sound good.Red gloves sounds better.

 

Why is it a german production? ...
The distribution is mostly Romanian. Although most people speak German, they are Romanian actors.
The differences between  film production in Germany and the one inRomania is that germans are better organized, they have more money and more funding.

 

About the two films youve brought to IPIFF  this year ...
My films are like children. Usually I like and I am most interested in my last film. I'm curious how the world receives it,  how  the world  sees it how the world  understands it . I hope it will be a trilogy. The third will be "The piano in fog. Let's see if I do it. I would want to do all three of them. For sure we'll bring it toIPIFF.

 

The new wave of Romanian directors ...
That is a stupidity from the press. Everyone says the new wave. What's a wave passes as a wave. They are very talented youngsters who are making film right now.They have a good law in film financing. So there are few talented people
