Storyline

Three girls' summer canoe trip down the river Kolpa becomes a journey into fear when they discover that the wooded riverbanks not only conceal the frontier between Slovenia and Croatia, but also the border between the permissible and the forbidden, and that it is the self-styled Guardian of the Frontier who draws the line.

A canoe trip in Slovenia--dream, nightmare, or reality?
15 November 2003 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Varuh meje (2002), shown here as "Guardian of the Frontier" is an

unsettling film. Three young female college students take what is

supposed to be a relaxing canoe trip down a scenic river in

Slovenia.This is not a nature movie, so we know things will go

wrong, and things definitely go very wrong.

Ultimately, the students find themselves in a small, rural village,

which appears eminently safe. At that point, the film reminded me

of Southern Comfort (1981). In Southern Comfort, urban soldiers

of the Louisiana National Guard are lost in a swamp, attacked by

local inhabitants, and then enter a village of "good Cajuns" who

may or may not be what they seem.

The tension in both films derives from the reaction of people who,

while extremely competent in their own environment, find

themselves in an environment where new skills are needed if they

are to survive.

"Guardian of the Frontier" provides some lovely footage of

Slovenian scenery, and some unexpected themes–-the artificiality

of the separation between two tiny countries--Slovenia and

Croatia--xenophobia, and rural/urban prejudices.

This is certainly not a must-see movie. On the other hand, how often do we get a chance to see any Slovenian movie in Upstate New York? "Guardian of the Frontier" is worth seeing near

home or on VHS or DVD. It's not a film for which it's worth a special trip to Slovenia to view without subtitles.
