Tuff Money (Bani Negri)

Origin and Year: Romania, 2020 Director: Daniel Sandu
Runnning time: 2 x 48 min

Two traffic light technicians have a laugh about manipulating traffic to rob a bank’s armored van, but end up having to do go through with it. All the institutions they turn to for help show themselves eager to make the heist happen and take a cut. Follow our two heroes struggle to balance their morals with a desire for self-preservation.
Written and directed by Daniel Sandu, Tuff Money is a witty take on guilt, innocence and the moving goalposts of morality in small town communities where getting away with “it,” and not getting one-upped by your neighbor, are the only ways you win at life.
