Scarred Hearts, the novel, by the Romanian-Jewish author Max Blecher, will be made into a film produced by the multi-talented and successful Romanian producer, Ada Solomon.  This is a great follow-up to her Golden Bear winning Child’s Pose by Călin Netzer (ISA: Beta Cinema).  Child's Pose is also Romania's submission for Nomination for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award.  Scarred Hearts will be directed by Radu Jude. This will be the third time the pair will team up after the films The Happiest Girl In the World and Everybody In Our Family

Published in 1937, Scarred Hearts (Inimi cicatrizate) chronicles the life of a Romanian student suffering from spinal tuberculosis who falls in love with another patient in a sanatorium near the French coast.  Emmanuel, a young man with spinal tuberculosis and confined to a sanatorium outside Paris, narrates his and his fellow patients’ attempts to live life to the fullest as their bodies slowly atrophy and die. Blending dark humor and pathos, Scarred Hearts was hailed as a masterpiece on publication in Romanian in 1939, and was more recently compared to Thomas Mann’s Magic Mountain and the fiction of Franz Kafka.

Jude has not yet decided on a Director of Photography; however, he stated that he plans to continue his exploration about the relationship between people and their bodies, as he did in his previous short piece Shadow of a Cloud (O umbră de nor). With an estimated budget of 1.2 million Euros, Solomon will produce through HiFilm Productions, other producers from France and Germany have also shown interest in the project which is expected to start shooting in 2015, and to premier in 2016.
