The filming of “Venuto al mondo” , an upcoming film starring Penelope Cruz, has finished filming in Bosnia and and Herzegovina and the cast & crew will now fly to Rome to shoot the last scenes, the Bosnian media reported Saturday.

The second stage of filming in Sarajevo, which began on November 7, ended without interruptions and on schedule, the media said.

Penelope was joined in Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital by her husband, acclaimed Spanish actor Javier Bardem, and their young son, Leo, just as she was in September during the first leg of filming in Bosnia

Although their presence aroused a great deal of interest from the media and the general public, the film stars managed to avoid the cameras during their stay.

In Italian director Sergio Castellitto’s “Venuto al mondo,” scheduled for release in Italy and Spain next year, Cruz plays a single mother who accompanies her teenage son to Sarajevo, where his father died in the 1992-1995 Bosnian conflict.

Filming began in September in Sarajevo and scenes also have been shot in Rome and the Croatian island of Korcula.

The film is based on the like-named novel by Margaret Mazzantini, the director’s wife and a bestselling Italian author.
