Film Movement has picked up domestic rights to Catalin Mitulescu's Romanian drama The Way I Spent The End Of The World, on which Martin Scorsese and Wim Wenders served as executive producers.

The film takes place in 1989 in the last year of Ceausesu's regime as a seven-year-old boy who vows to kill the dictator after his older sister is sent to reformatory school for a minor infraction.

The film won the Un Certain Regard (Best Actress) award in 2006 for Doroteea Petre, having previously won the 2005 Sundance/NHK International Filmmakers Award.

'The Way I Spent The End Of The World is an exceptional, moving drama about life under one of history's worst dictatorships that we are proud to make available to North American audiences in theatres, on DVD and TV,' Film Movement's chief executive officer Stuart Litman said.
