Gritty Charm and Heart
28 August 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this wonderful film on Australia's multi-cultural network, SBS Televsion. Martin Sulik - a comparatively young film artist - Directs his film with assurance and gentle humour. Krajinka' ('Landscape') is constructed around a narrative suite, with each story building to reveal a potted history of Slovenia. These are ironic and tragic stories seen through the eyes and lives of Sulik's down-to-earth characters. Each story has its genuinely moving momments, but the film never stoops to sentimentality.
