This film, besides being a touching love story, sometimes stylized to poetry, and sometimes quite harsh, it is also our own view of the mirror. View - with all his criticism of the gravity of the meeting with our corrupt essence, which is on sale. Mirror - to what is today ... what could be. And in that sense, it is not surprising that this is one of only three films, which is a film festival in Motovun, under the direction of filmmaker Rajko Grlic classified in the 'new regional landscape', 'View from the Eiffel Tower' deals with the fate of sons / daughters where generations of their fathers in the inheritance left behind collapsed principles of chaos and destroyed the society. This film tells about a time when your sons / daughters to decide whether to correct errors or fathers to just go the other way. Brilliant role of actress Mary Vickovic, directed by Nikola Vukcevic and richness of visual allegory - told the story about growing up in Yugoslavia, to meet 21st Ages. It is about growing up, which carries a price, between vengeance and hope, love and passion, friendship and redemption. This motif, which is huge, layered, and demanding for cinematic achievement, which is why this film, style, way of telling stories and above all an allegory, and associativity, reveals the scope of the mature works, the authentic, the manuscript of a specific project worth attention, even though it is about a young filmmaker, which this is only the first feature motion picture.
