Anishoara

"...a clear-eyed, unsentimental, and very gently liberating homage to all the girls of times gone by and all the girls of times to come... " (Jessica Kiang, Variety)

Synopsis

Anishoara is a 15-year old girl from a small village in Moldova, situated in a picturesque valley between rolling hills. Alone with her old grandfather Petru and her little brother Andrei life is calm but archaic. In summer she and her friends make a trip to the melon harvest, where she feels for the first time the overwhelming sensation of first love. In autumn an old, strange German tourist comes to the village and interferes with her life for a brief moment. In winter Anishoara travels for the first time to the sea, with Dragosh, the young man she fell in love with. In spring she is longing for Dragosh, but he returns with a surprise. It is the last year of Anishoara’s childhood in this valley, before she takes off into her adult life.
