Scarred Hearts

Inimi cicatrizate

Directed by Radu Jude
Romania, 2016
  • Romanian
  • English


Summer, 1937: Emanuel, a young writer, is committed to a sanatorium on the Black Sea coast for treatment. He reads, he writes, he smokes, he drinks and he romances. As he gets accustomed to the sadness of his new life, Emanuel discovers that there is still a life to be lived to the fullest.

Our take

Romanian New Wave director Radu Jude follows up his award-winning Aferim! with this wry adaptation mixing an author’s writings with his life. Shooting his colorful 35mm production in playfully old fashioned 4:3, this ode to an ingenious and poetic soul is a delightful mix of melancholy and humor.
