Morgen – acclaimed by world critics

Four days ago, Marian Crisan’s production collected four awards in Locarno. The international press praises the young filmmaker, heralding him as “a distinct voice in the Romanian landscape”. In the feature film “Morgen”, one of the winners of the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, the director Marian Crisan conveys the artificial nature of borders, as well as humanity at its purest, while the filmmaker is revealed as “a distinct voice in the Romanian landscape”. This is how “Variety” characterizes the Romanian feature. According to critic Jay Weissberg, at “Variety”, the main themes of the production marking Marian Crisan’s feature film debut are “the absurdity of borders” and “the decency of the average Joe”. “The helmer’s 2008 Palme d’Or for short ‘Megatron’ set up expectations that ‘Morgen’ confirms,” ‘Variety’ appreciates. “Discreetly controlled lensing and an undisguised heart at the film’s core reveal a distinct voice in the Romanian landscape,” is further stated in the publication. “Morgen” tells the tale of Nelu (Andras Hathazy), a man living at the Romanian-Hungarian border, who loves fishing. One day, he “fishes” a Turkish illegal immigrant, Behran (Yilmaz Yalcin). Nelu offers him protection and takes him up in his own home and, even if they don’t speak a common language, the two become friends.
