Romanian director Cristi Puiu, best known for his Palme d’Or winning feature Death of Mr. Lazarescu, has concluded principal photography on his anticipated next film Manor House, screedaily.com announced. 

This is the director’s first feature where French is spoken. Set in 1900 on the estate of a wealthy landowner, sees the director return to the work of the late-19th century Russian philosopher Vladimir Solovyov. Previously, the director first used his works in his experimental acting-workshop film Three Exercises of Interpretation in 2013.

“The text constrains me to reformulate a large part of everything that has to do with image, acting and setting within a story told in the past tense,” Puiu explained.

According to the website, the cast is headed by France’s Ugo Broussot and Lithuania’s Diana Sakalauskaite.
