Made in Italy: The heart-warming comedy with Liam Neeson is now playing in cinemas

Made in Italy, the comedy-drama written and directed by James D'Arcy (in his feature directorial debut) is now playing in Romanian and Hungarian cinemas. It stars Liam Neeson and his son, Micheál Richardson.

Made in Italy is a heart-warming comedy, set in glorious Tuscany, about bohemian London artist Robert (Liam Neeson) who returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Micheál Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair…

As Robert and Jack painstakingly restore the villa to its previous glory, father and son also start to mend their relationship. The future may now look quite different and surprise them both.

The Writer / Director James D’Arcy: “I was first inspired to write the film whilst on holiday in Tuscany. Originally, I had intended to play the role of Jack, but as it took over a decade from inception to fruition I grew too old for the role. A different opportunity now arose as by this time I could see the film so clearly in my head that I couldn’t imagine anyone else directing it!”.

James D'Arcy is an English actor. He is known for his portrayals of Howard Stark's butler, Edwin Jarvis, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe television series Agent Carter and the 2019 film Avengers: Endgame, and murder suspect Lee Ashworth in the second series of the ITV series Broadchurch. D'Arcy also co-starred as Colonel Winnant in Christopher Nolan's war movie Dunkirk (2017).

Made in Italy takes on added poignancy in light of the real-life tragic death of Neeson’s wife Natasha Richardson after suffering a fall while skiing in Canada back in 2009. His son, Micheál changed his name in honor of his late mother. So, the storyline of Made in Italy has a uniquely personal touch.

Liam Neeson about Made in Italy: “It's a great story about family and love… And compassion and loss - and humour... I found it very cathartic in dealing with my own grief.... And to do that through one's art, ie making film, was very, very unique and special”.

Micheál Richardson: “At the start when I read it, it was so close to us and just kind of weird how it came into our lives at the time it did. It's been 10 years since Mum passed and I think coming from somebody who's lost a parent at a young age... There is a line in the film where dad says, “Nobody knows how to do this”. I don't think anybody does but when you experience something like that a lot of the time you shut down, stuff it in, which isn't the way I think you should grieve. You have to let it out, you have to cry, you can't push them out of your memory in any way and that's kind of what I had done as I'm sure many people have done. So this process I hope and I feel it has been chipping away at parts of me that I kind of locked down”.

Made in Italy is now playing in Romanian and Hungarian cinemas.

After We Collided: Now in cinemas!

The blockbuster After We Collided opens today in almost all cinemas from Romania.

After breaking records in the first running weekend in the Czech Republic (48,000 spectators in 3 days), Hungary (40,000 spectators) and Slovakia (30,000 spectators), After We Collided is ready to break records in Romania, where fans are looking forward to finally see it.

Most cinemas in the country have reopened and will play After We Collided starting September 11.

After We Collided is the film adaptation of the best-selling novel written by Anna Todd, After We Collided, and is the sequel of her best-selling novel After, which became an international hit after starting as a fan-fiction on the Wattpad platform.

The After series includes five books written by Anna Todd that have been read over 1.5 billion times on Wattpad. Simon & Schuster Publishing House has published four books in the series, which have since been translated and published in 40 countries.

The first film in the After franchise debuted as number one at the box office in 17 international territories when it was released in April 2019 and, since then, has accumulated over $70 million worldwide.

The second chapter is just waiting for the reunion with its base of loyal fans of "Afternators", but also to be discovered by moviegoers who were deprived of access to cinema for almost half a year.

After We Collided is distributed in Romania by Prorom and Ro Image.

Lassie Come Home - Interview with director Hanno Olderdissen: “The audience can look forward to a modern film with a nostalgic feel and lots of fun.”

This weekend, Lassie Come Home (directed by Hanno Olderdissen) re-enters the Romanian cinemas. On this occasion, we bring you an exclusive interview with the Director of the movie, Hanno Olderdissen.

Hanno Olderdissen was born in 1976 in Bielefeld, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. He is known for his work on Robin (2008), Rock My Heart (2017) and What to Do in Case of Fire (2001) as well for the family film Wendy 2 - Freundschaft für immer (2018) and the series Der Bulle und das Biest (2019).

How did you approach the idea of bringing Lassie again into the big screen?
I wanted to create a film that was modern and interesting for the children but also has a classic nostalgic touch to honor the original Lassie Films and Series that we, as parents and grandparents know from our own childhood.

When did you first read the book by Eric Knight? How does this movie differ from the book?
I read the novel once, when I started working on the project together with the Producer Henning Ferber and Screenwriter Jane Ainscough. The Novel has a very epic story that goes over many months and has many chapters. The Story of the movie concentrates more on Lassie and her owner Flo and how they overcome adventures and obstacles to find back to each other.

Working on the two episodes of Der Bulle und das Biest helped you in directing this new Lassie movie?
It was a good “practice” for me to shot a TV Series with an bullmastiff. There I already got to know our excellent dog trainer Renate Hiltl and her crew. It surely helped and prepared me for directing Lassie.

After Rock My Heart and Wendy 2 - Freundschaft für immer where the “stars” were horses, now you bring this iconic dog back on the big screen. It seems that you are an animal lover, like me. Do you have a pet?
Unfortunately, I live in the City and have a Job, that involves a lot of travelling, so my lifestyle is not suitable for a pet. But when I was a little boy I lived in the countryside and my father trained racehorses, that I used to ride, when I was a child. Later I was very keen on showjumping.  And we had a little Jack Russel Terrier. So, yes: I am an animal lover.

Do you have something to transmit to the audience from Romania and Hungary, the two countries where Prorom will release the movie? What should the audience expect when they go see this movie?
I think the audience can look forward to a modern film with a nostalgic feel and lots of fun, adventure, drama and two very sweet and beautiful dogs.
