“When I chose the name of the film, it somehow crossed my mind that a connection with the Urma band could be created. But it was just a thought. But it all started from Mani Gutau’s remark: «You made a movie with the name of my band?». Then, without hesitation, I asked him to watch the movie and, if he found it interesting, to think about how we could work together. Mani was among the first viewers of the film and his feedback was also encouraging and helpful, “said producer Oana Bujgoi Giurgiu.
The song “A Place for Me” was the choice of director Dorian Boguţă for the soundtrack. The video of the song included on the album “Trend Off” (2007) is directed by Boguţă, and the protagonist is the soloist of the band, Mani Gutau. The filming took place at Vidraru Lake, one of the filming locations.
“Theoretically, the movie” Urma “is not about Urma music. Basically, the music of Urma is in the film «Urma». Somewhere, between theoretical and practical, film and music Urma go on the same path, which is out of time. From one heart to another. I hope that this wonderful story, signed by an even better team, will receive the attention it deserves, ”Gutau said.
