Romania chooses BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN by Radu Jude for the 2022 Oscar race!

We are happy to announce that the Berlinale Golden Bear Winner BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN by Radu Jude is the Official Romanian submission to the 2022 Oscars.

Emi, a schoolteacher, finds her reputation under threat after a personal sex tape is uploaded onto the internet. Forced to meet the parents demanding her dismissal, Emi refuses to surrender. BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN is a film in three loosely connected parts: a walk in the city of Bucharest, then a playful essay on obscenities, all culminating, in the third part, in an incendiary comic confrontation. Golden Bear for Best Film at Berlinale 2021.

The film is produced by Ada Solomon from microFILM (Romania) in co-production with Paul Thiltges Distributions (Luxembourg), endorfilm (Czech Republic) and Kinorama (Croatia).

INTERNATIONAL PRESS

“It’s a daring and hilarious cinematic gamble that gives a justifiable middle finger to the sheer inanity of the Western world — and it’s also an unpredictable blast, and an angry editorial cartoon that invites us into its outrage” IndieWire

“another dismal state-of-the-nation report card, but a more riotously bonkers one, as he throws decorum in the trash to reveal the hypocrisy of the powerful as the true vulgarity” Sight & Sound

“a […] provocative pandemic polemic […] Jude remains a boldly original voice in modern European cinema, with serious things to say and increasingly adventurous ways of saying them”  The Hollywood Reporter

“ […] this provocative and unapologetically profane Buñuelian prank one of the first examples of a genuine auteur work to emerge in a world upended by COVID-19”  Variety

“a contemptuous slap at boredom, at hypocrisy and at everything petty and mean” Guardian

this is certainly the most unrepentantly confrontational work we’ve yet seen from Jude” Screendaily

“There are dark laughs around every corner as Jude delivers his scathing indictment on modern-day Romania… Deeply uncomfortable and revealing [..] Thought-provoking, well performed and states its case remarkably clearly.” Deadline

 a wholly inventive and amusing film that crashes societal norms against one another with sharp humour and navigates its politics with real bite and imagination  Little White Lies

Thought provoking and stimulating, Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn shows Jude at his most inventive Ion Cinema
