Fun, sexy and sincere - low budget sci-fi with a pinch of gore!
21 May 2013 | by (another heavenly world) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of good-humored low-budget sci-fi that lives on its words and ideas floating upon a theatrical canvas, then I think this might be a movie you'll fall in love with. I surely did. It's all about the imagination! So, how far does it dare to tread? I love the way the monster was put into the picture! There is quite some gore at a certain point. It's definitely not suitable for children. But the way the violence comes undone does seem and work like a fairytale trick on the mind. Quite refreshing for its original blend of genres and emotional honesty! The direction is accurate and non-intrusive. The script: magical! The story and its main characters are the real stars here. All the actors are very competent and Zarko Potocnjak does his part with a trace of irony that perfectly befits his role.
