The French Institute’s Cinema Elvire Popesco (Bvd. Dacia 77, Bucharest) is home from 19 to 23 February 2020 to the Nordic Film Festival. After last year’s successful edition, this time round the festival shows 18 films from Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.

The Bucharest Municipality Museum takes pleasure in hosting a special performance on Friday, 31 January, from 6.30pm, in its historic premises of Palatul Şuţu (Bvd. Ion C. Brătianu 2). Titled, “Passion and Love”, the show is a music-poetry “duel” performed by Albanian-born soprano Arlinda Morava, actor Marius Bodochi, the Bucharest Ladies Quintet and violist Iulian Bolog. Tickets cost 20 RON and can be purchased on the day.

Or even haughtiness and arrogance.
