Nae Caranfil studied at the Film and Theatre Institute (UNATC) in Bucharest, which he graduated in 1984. He is the son of important Romanian film historian and critic Tudor Caranfil.
In the beginning of his career he directed only short films: Venice in September (1983), Thirty Years of Insomnia (1984) and Backstage (1988). Caranfil made his feature film debut with E Pericoloso Sporgersi (1993) and continued with road movie comedy Asfalt tango (1996) (starring Charlotte Rampling) and with Dolce far niente (1998). His movie Filantropica (2002) was a critical success and attracted lots of popularity for Caranfil. Some consider Nae Caranfil to be the best Romanian director of the 1990s.
Nae Caranfil wrote the screenplay for all his movies and worked on the music for the first two of them (E Pericoloso Sporgersi and Asfalt-tango).
