Jury of the Department of Media and Arts in the Trade Union ver.di
Alexander Nanau (Romania) for the film
Toto şi surorile lui (Toto and His Sisters)
From the very first second, the viewer will be catapulted into a cold, chaotic, hostile world and gets more and more under emotional pressure: Children — left entirely on their own — always in danger, apparently lost —
…but then, new ways open up that may promise rescue and escape from misery.
By telling a somewhat exaggerated and brutal, but still hopeful story, the filmmaker focuses his attention on a pressing, Europe-wide, social problem.
