EARTH'S SWEET KISS
Gautier Gumpper • France • 2023 • 108 min

This film presents a very subtle metaphor to us about the beauty of life born out of struggle and the desire to preserve the integrity of the individual.

Embracing formal limitations, this is a film that skilfully and slowly unfolds a narrative situated on the edges of society. With dignity and a poetic transformative power, this finely tuned work deploys all of the most cinematic tools to create intimacy with the voiceless.

We have decided to give Earth's Sweet Kiss the award of Best Film in the Romanian Competition.
