Forgive me for Kung Fu -, 27 November 2013
Author: Elmar Jukic from United States

If you like movies with everyday characters in a small-town ( this time a story is set in southern European environment) then you'll like this piece. It's not a feel-good-movie, rather an unpleasant demonstration of old-fashioned way of thinking. The story is not exaggerating anything, coming originally from these parts I recognize the argot as identical and not at all artificial. The performance of the actors is, in a way, a documentary-like in many ways. If I sum it up : Prejudice and narrow-mindedness expressed when something new is coming from outwards. But, at least for someone with my taste, a very interesting line of "how will it continue".
