She joined the pre-screening of the movie, which opens in Bucharest cinemas today ( March 2 ). Bisset also visited Romania last year, when she was invited to the Transylvania Film Festival (TIFF).
”The Phantom Father’, Romanian Lucian Georgescu’s first feature length film, starring Marcel Iures, was nominated for awards at the Mons Love Film Festival in Belgium. The film was selected for the debut movie category. Beverly Hills based sales agent House of Film recently acquired the Phantom Father movie.
The romantic comedy tells the story of American professor Robert Traum (Marcel Iures), who has returned to his father’s native country and Tanya (Mihaela Sarbu). Georgescu’s film is based on American writer Barry Gifford’s novel ‘Almost Oriental’.
