Marona’s Fantastic Tale
[L’extraordinaire voyage de Marona], directed by Anca Damian, France/Romania/Belgium 2019, 92'
Marona, a little dog, keeps changing carers. The world of humans, however, can be too complicated for a pup who only wants to be loved. Every time the little mutt gets adopted, she gets a new name: the acrobat Manole calls her Ana, the labourer Istvan – Sara, the girl Solange – Marona. Unfortunately, none of the houses are stable enough for the dog to stay permanently. What if people were just as dependent on animals as the animals are on humans? The film has been created by the Romanian director, screenwriter and producer Anca Damian.
