very good!, 29 October 2005
Author: levijatana from Croatia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Croatian movie industry (if there is, in fact such a thing) has suffered a lot through the time of consolidation, but the most recent results show certain improvement, at least when it comes to the creative energy that bursts from this movie.

"oprosti za kung fu" is a dark comedy showing the tragedy of primitivism, but also shows the natural humor of Croatian rural element. Places that the director Svilicic chose for filming are great in their nudity, and actors are very natural and expressive. What I appreciated the most is a keen contrast between humorous and tragic element.

When young Mira comes back to her modest home after time spent in Germany, and also pregnant she will be faced with the harsh life back with her parents who desperately try to find her a husband suitable for her delicate situation, of course against her will. Tis will lead to numerous absurd and tragic situations, especially after the child is born.

I really liked this movie and would recommend it as such to anyone who appreciates a good laugh.
