On the way back Ivan runs into Armando, his high school classmate, and through their conversation at a bar, Ivan finds out that long before Sonja became his wife, Armando spent a night with her. Ivan has his first drop of the hard stuff...Kruh in mleko is a bitter-sweet tale of loneliness, estrangement and the glowing embers of love, where there once used to be a fire.

two thumbs up!!!
19 October 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria/Ptuj, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

The movie is good. That would I say if I had only one sentence to say. But, further :

  • its length is short enough to concentrate on peoples emotions and that


is the whole point of the movie
  • Jan Cvitkovic is naturely a genius! He has no formal education in making


movies (the only experience to him was, I think, playing the main male role in "V leru" by J. Burger).
  • the camera is brilliant ; it haunts you with details




But, further :
  • it is not my favourite slovenian movie, unfortunately


  • my favourite is still "Balada o trobenti in oblaku" by France


Stiglic

Although :
  • "Kruh in mleko" deserves a 9 plus out of 10!!!
