Romanian film ‘Francesca’, banned in Venetian cinema theatres

Bobby Paunescu’s “Francesca”, already presented at the Venice Film Festival, will no longer be screened in the Italian city. The decision to suspend public distribution was announced yesterday by the Manager of the Cinema Circuit in Venice, Realitatea TV informs. This decision was determined by threats that Bobby Paunescu would be sued by Italian Deputy Alessandra Mussolini and by the Mayor of Verona, Flavio Tosi. Actually, Fandango, the film’s distribution company, got a legal warning due to certain lines in “Francesca.” The two politicians are outraged by the lines of a character in the movie, which contain insults referring to them.
