„From a professional point of view, it was a unique experience to direct a script that was not written by me, in an unusual universe for me - the story taking place in the countryside, in the north of Moldova, while I was born and raised in Bucharest, without having so far had any relationship with life in the country, let alone with Moldova”, said the movie director Paul Negoescu. „I did a casting that lasted more than a year, interrupted also because of the pandemic. I was looking for actors who speak with a Moldovan accent, so I started the search with actors from the area - Botoşani, Iași, Suceava. Then I widened the search area, including among actors from the Republic of Moldova, even if their accent is different, then I searched among actors from Bucharest who are of Moldovan origin or have relatives in Moldova. That's how I found out that Iulian was born and raised in Moldova, which delighted me, because I had already admired him for some time”,he ended.
