What can I say about Croatian movies? They are terrible. 60% of them are about war and 30% sucks the big time. So I usually don't watch Croatian movies. This one stayed at my desk for 9 months and finally I watched it! All I can say that it is great. You don't need a lot of money to make a god movie. All you need is a good story and good ambient in the movie.
The movie is about 2 lesbian girls that move to live together. They find a place in part of Zagreb called Tresnjevka (I know that because I live in Zagreb). Problem with Tresnjevka was it was a workers part of town. Now it isn't, but it was before 50 years. So they find an apartment in a house. Problem with the house it that it has ghosts of her own. The landlord is a women that is conservative a manipulative person. It has a son that is under big influence of his mom. On one floor there is a soldier that has Vietnam syndrome and bit's his wife every day because she can give him a son. On one floor there is a hoer. In one floor there is a guy that is holding his dead wife in his apartment pretending that she is alive. And on the last floor is gynecologic.
Can you expect what can happen in catholic and conservative Country like Croatia?
