The Romanian movie Oh, Ramona!, an English adaptation of the best-selling book Suge-o, Ramona! (Suck it, Ramona!) by Romanian comedian Andrei Ciobanu, launched in cinemas all across Romania on February 13, 14.
The movie is a teenage rom-com directed by Romanian Cristina Jacob, who also directed Selfie and Selfie 69, two of the most popular Romanian movies launched in recent years. Cristina Jacob, 30, is the girlfriend of Romanian media mogul Adrian Sarbu, the former CEO of Central Media Enterprises (CME) and PRO TV.
Oh, Ramona! follows Andrei’s transformation from a teenager into an adult, torn between two girls he loves – Ramona and Anemona. Andrei, the main character, tells the story of his adolescence as seen through his eyes, with the good and bad parts in it, in a mix of self-irony and humor.
Oh, Ramona!’s scriptwriters are Cristina Jacob, Andrei Ciobanu, and Alex Cotet. The director opted for a mix of foreign and Romanian actors for this movie, including Romanian actor Bogdan Iancu (who plays the main character Andrei), Polish-born actress Aggy K. Adams (who plays Ramona), Holly Horne, Basil Eidenbenz, Leonardo Boudreau, Andromeda Godfrey, and Melanie Ebanks.
