Monsters Dana and Arthur, wife and husband in their forties, have been together for almost 10 years. They are a couple that society, family, friends seem to love together, but despise separately. Because of their needs, their beliefs, their life options, their inner monsters. The day comes for them to decide if letting go is the biggest proof of love.
Marius Olteanu After graduating from NFTS, United Kingdom, with a Master's in Fiction Film Directing, Marius Olteanu chose to focus on the clash between private and social life and the boundaries that arise from this conflict. His last two shorts, Tie (2015), which was the starting point for his feature debut Monsters, and No man’s land (2017) were selected for more than 30 festivals – Busan IFF, Tallinn POFF, Namur FIFF, TIFF etc. These films show his interest in exploring what lies beyond the perfect surface of things and finding new cinematic ways to convey the struggle with one’s own limits. Marius worked as an assistant director for the award-winning film Sieranevada (2016) by Cristi Puiu and is also a published photographer.
