An old-fashioned arthouse film that will summon memories of Antonioni, Tarkovsky, and Leviathan, Banat is the feature debut of Milanese writer-director Adriano Valerio. In the Italian seaside city of Bari, young agronomist Ivo is packing his belongings in reluctant anticipation of his impending move to Romania; unable to find work in Italy, he's agreed to manage a remote farm there. When new tenant Clara arrives early, the two discover an immediate bond that carries over to the farm when she joins him after being fired from her job. Dwarfed in the frozen Eastern European landscape, the unlikely homesteaders must endure economic and emotional challenges.
