The short drama Megatron from Romanian writer/director Marian Crisan won the Palme d'Or in 2008. It is the story of a young boy called Maxim, his birthday, his mother and his absent father. For those who do not know, Megatron is the name of one of the Transformers and, in this case, the toy Maxim wants from a McDonalds promotion. It is the kind of subtle, slightly bleak drama that the Cannes jury likes. Crisan has gone on to directing features in his homeland. Rate and share it!
