Adrian is a poor Romanian writer trying to make it in Spain, while grappling with the prejudices that are inflicted both upon and by him. An unabashed romantic with a temper to boot, he divides his time evenly between typing out his woes and attempting to woo the dreamy-but-doomed Maria, a Spanish musician.
Parking is based on the Romanian bestseller Apropierea by Marin Mălaicu Hondrari, a story involving a Romanian poet who’s life changes forever when he falls in love with a Spanish woman. It is Tudor Giurgiu’s fourth feature film. Filming took take place in three Spanish cities: Cordoba, Seville and Candas, as well as in the Romanian town of Sângeorz-Băi.
Parking is produced by Libra Film Productions, co-produced by La Claqueta, Tito Clint Movies, Cercanías la Película AIE (Spain) and Evolution Films, Studio Beep (Czech Republic), with the support of the Romanian National Film Centre, Junta de Andalucia, Czech Film Fund, Canal Sur, TVR, HBO, Eurimages and the European Union’s Creative Europe program.
