DOCU-FICTION

Ivana invite amis, famille et anciens amants à jouer leur propre rôle dans la version scénarisée de l’histoire d’une femme au bord de la crise de nerfs. À la frontière du Danube, le drame devient comédie.

"Comédie mordante et acide, Ivana cea Groaznica est interprété, écrit et réalisé par Ivana Mladenović, qui fait jouer sa véritable famille et situe le film à Kladovo, sa ville natale. Ivana va donc secouer son petit monde dans cette autofiction où l’anxiété côtoie l’excentricité, où l’amour circule aussi vite que les insultes et où les notables sont aussi ridicules que sensibles à la poésie."
(Victor Bournérias - Festival de Locarno)

Ivana works as an actress in Romania, but after she is confronted with some health issues, decides to spend the summer in her small Serbian hometown by the Danube river, surrounded by family. She is asked by the mayor to be the image of the local music festival and she reluctantly accepts it. But after her eccentric musician friends arrive from Bucharest and her love life involving a much younger local boy becomes the town’s gossip, Ivana is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
Original protagonists, friends and family were invited to re-live the emotions and play themselves as fictional characters on camera in a story about a woman who cannot find her place on either sides of the Danube river.

"Ivana Mladenović writes, directs and stars in the biting and acerbic comedy Ivana the Terrible, which features her real family and takes place in her hometown of Kladovo. Ivana shakes up her little world in this fictional autobiography where anxiety goes hand in hand with eccentricity, love travels as fast as insults and notable people are ridiculous and sensitive to poetry in equal measure."
(Victor Bournérias - Locarno Festival)
