Stars: Kristin Scott Thomas, Claudiu Bleont, Marcel Iures, Olga Tudorache Claudiu Bleont, the special guest of the Romanian Arts Festival in Auckland, will introduce the movie to the public prior to the screening. A Romanian-French co-production, it stars British actress Kristin Scott Thomas as the Hungarian-born aristocrat Marie-Thérèse Von Debretsy and Claudiu Bleont as her husband, Romanian Land Forces Captain Petre Dumitriu. Young Marie-Therese Von Debretsy (Kristin Scott Thomas,) married to Captain Petre Dumitriu (Claudiu Bleont,) refuses the flirtatious advances of her husband`s commanding officer Ipsilanti (Marcel Iures.) As a result, the cosmopolitan family is reassigned to a brutally bleak and dangerous outpost on the Bulgarian/Romanian frontier where both their relationship and humanity are severely tested. There, she witnesses first-hand the violent clashes between the Greater Romanian administration, and the komitadji brigands of Macedonian origin and ethnic Bulgarian locals. The film shows her failed attempt to rescue Bulgarians held hostage by the Romanian soldiers, who are destined for execution. This movie is part of Doina - Romanian Arts Festival in Auckland, an annual event supported by Creative Communities.
