Bad Penny by Andrei Crețulescu - CINEPUB

Synopsis

If you see clowns at night, do not kill them.

„Bad Penny”, „Kowalsky” și „Ramona” make up the „impromptu” trilogy directed by Andrei Crețulescu. „Bad Penny” is the short that opens this three characters’ fable that combines humor, violence and the fantastic. The short film confronts innocence with the cynical and visceral reaction of many people to what they can’t understand. It is a genre movie, postmodern, with a false dialogue between some gangbangers and a mute mime with a soundtrack signed by Dead Man’s Bones, Ryan Gosling’s band. A movie that belongs to the category of Romanian shorts that, by the way they are constructed, allow the director to acquire his/her own style.
