Storyline

Two boys are on an unplanned vacation by foot. They meet a girl who has nothing but a bikini under her coat. She says her cloths were stolen while she was bathing. She joins their company. They steel cloths for her. There is a little kissing with both but nothing that could make the other jealous. During most of the movie they enjoy minor pleasures. But occasionally when the girl is alone she has attacks of very painful emotions. In the end it turns out that she is a former child-prisoner of a German KZ-lager, who had run away from a mental hospital in bikini and coat. Some of the staff were searching for her. But when she sees them she commits suicide. Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

The movie on freedom, which is shown as illusory and haunted by the past
27 May 2005 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Maybe this is isn't Bostjan Hladnik at his best, but still the film very well represents his role in the (history of) Slovenian cinema. Already with his first movie Dancing in the Rain Hladnik introduced the aesthetics of modernity in the cinema of Slovenia, which was one of the socialist republics of Yugoslavia. As in the Sand Castle (which is a sort of a road movie or maybe more precise: off road movie) there is not a lot of story - we just get a lot of fragments, which emit double messages of joy and anxiety. At the end the trauma is revealed in a quite abrupt way. The explanation, which is given at the end of the movie, seems even too explicit and it is somehow not in tune with otherwise generally "nouvelle vague" kind of atmosphere of the film. Nevertheless the film is one of the first Yugoslav films, which reflect the emerging urban middle class and new values of younger generation.
