Capra cu trei iezi - still (5) TEST EPK site.jpg
Capra cu trei iezi - poster (2).jpg

Secluded from the world, in XIX century rural Romania,

a widow and mother of three must defend what’s left of her family, at all costs, from an old family friend turned foe.

Based on one of the best-known Romanian tales (The Goat and Her Three Kids by Ion Creangă), this film aims to unveil the true nature of the famed bedtime story

and to treat the audience to a different perspective, one that offers a glimpse of what the tragedy looks like beyond the happy songs and affable characters.

 

Included in the primary education cycle shortly after being published and illustrated in the opening pages of the teachers alphabet between the 70s and the 90s, The Goat and Her Three Kids by Ion Creangă is still one of the most popular and controversial Romanian bedtime stories.

Proof of this are the millions of views that the animated versions of the same story still receive on-line till this day.

The movie follows in closely to the original storyline augmenting its subtleties and, for the most part, keeping its dialogs.

If you are taken aback by my approach on our childhood story, know that it is only normal. Most likely, you are not the only one thinking that this is not how the story went. I’d urge you to give it another read. It is our gift to come into this world equipped to experience things in their purest form and entirely neglect any foulness or malintent. This story is closely tied to our upbringing, our families, our first days of school, and our friends. So naturally, you carry with you a preconception as you walk into the cinema. I must admit it was the same preconception that swayed me to set out on this adventure and I must apologize for choosing such an important piece of literature for my debut as a film director! I underestimated the task that was at hand by thinking: "it’s just a short, simple bedtime story with a little hidden gore."

However, during the last 6 years of my life that I dedicated towards the completion of this project, I had plenty of time to come to my senses and, hopefully, managed to do it justice after all.

Before I go on, I must acknowledge that, so far, I have addressed only the Romanian public. That doesn’t mean the movie can’t be watched by anyone regardless of nationality! I just felt like I owed everyone that grew up with this story a special introduction.

Regarding "why this story?" the answer is rather simple. No one has ever done it before. The realization that there were no adaptations of this story out there to be watched was nothing short of an epiphany for me. And much more important than that, my wife was on board with the idea!

The first external source of inspiration had to be my former acting teacher, Romania’s acting icon and the fricking mother of God, Maia Morgenstern! It felt so natural that the two should come together, her and this iconic role, that I am confident it was just a mere matter of time till someone else would have made it happen. And how lucky am I to have been the instrument that coalesced them?

Now, I am not a superstitious man, nor do I hold any firm reasons to believe in destiny, but I must admit, sometimes, in retrospect, it feels like this project had a mind of its own and that we were there just to do its bidding. Through a series of events, the antagonist of the story, the big bad wolf, came to life through the unique figure of Marius Bodochi who, through his talent, decades of experience, haunting voice, and charisma, gave us all the wolf we never knew this film needed!

Finally, I’d like to leave you with this: If you happen to watch The Goat and Her Three Kids know that I have done everything that was in my power to make the movie I wanted to watch. To what extent I managed to pull it off really doesn’t matter! What matters is that, when you watch it, you’re seeing much more than just an adaptation of a famous plot. You are seeing the conglomerated result of combined efforts, of risk, passion, teamwork, immense sacrifice, and a childhood promise that I was fortunate enough to see fulfilled.

One thing I've learned about the industry, living in the USA, is that audience’s preawareness (comfortable familiarity) regarding your movies plot is crucial.

I can’t guarantee it but I believe this is the only way independent  film producers will have a feature in the industry. So if you’re planning on making an INDI film, make sure you make one the public is already waiting for.  Also, equally important , is that you put some heart into it out of respect for your audience and for your craft.

That was the main reason we chose The Goat and Her Three Kids.

Second reason being it was a great idea!

Back in the day when we were kids (70s-90s), all our ABCs began the same way; with the Goat and Her Three Kids.

On top of that, since its debut in 1875 and to the present, this story has been promoted in textbooks, in comics, games, filmstrips, plays and animations, so much so that it became part of our nations identity, making it almost impossible to find a single adult Romanian that never heard about The Goat and Her Three Kids.   

To reinforcing this statement I’ll leave you with a fragment of Sadoveanu’s text, written around the age of 40:

„The book that I would agonize over, dragging my finger across its pages, wide eyed, big curly lines, twisted and jumbled like a swarm of insects was Creanga's ABCs. It was a book without any pictures, tangled and mysterious. I’ve had memorized almost all the normal words and, still, in front of me laid a riddle. When, suddenly, like through a flash of light, I’d found it’s key...

(...) I couldn't say what sudden understanding, sprung out of my tender being, that like lightning tided together sounds, signs and words. A moment before I was standing before hieroglyphs. Now, with a biting heart , I understood that I had the key to unlocking the riddles of reading.

This hour  of light and great understanding  remained tied together in my memory to The Goat and Her Three Kids...”.

Mihail Sadoveanu (5 nov 1880 – 19 oct 1961)
(fragments from “În amintirea lui Creangă”, 1920)

It’s impossible to imagine a better fit for the iconic role of the widowed mother than MAIA MORGENSTERN, a cinematic symbol and a symbol for the whole Romanian  theater, winner  of countless international awards and easily the best known and most appreciated Romanian actress.

On the flipside of the same coin we have MARIUS BODOCHI, a theatrical star, valued by the entire country and a treasure of the National Theater of Bucharest , who through his unique style and distinctive voice brought flesh to bone to the famed antagonist.

Interpreting the roles of the three kids are ANTONIO POPESCU, RAZVAN ILINA and SILVIU CORBU each reminding us in their own personal way that  at the rut of acting lies the pleasure and capability to play.
