Peter is in his early forties and until recently he worked in a factory, but after Slovenia's integration into the European Union, the factory closed down and Peter and his colleagues have been made redundant. Slowly but surely, he is losing self-confidence and self-esteem. His wife Vera is actually seeing another man and their marriage soon falls apart. Almost overnight Peter remains alone, as Vera moves out and takes Sonja, their daughter, with her. In a moment of despair, Peter decides to hang himself. He takes a rope and when the rope is tightening around his neck a doorbell rings. By mere coincidence a neighbor, who just wanted to borrow some coffee, saves his life. One day, on his way home, he finds all his neighbors, scared and worried, in front of the house. He learns that gas has been leaking in the cellar. Fire fighters should have arrived already, but they got stuck in a traffic jam. Peter does not hesitate; he runs into the building and manages to shut down the main valve ... Written by
1. Peter Musevski. Do I need to say more? Undoubtfully, best Slovenian actor and the only one, beside Davor Janjic (Outsider), who can act in the movies. Others are just acting like they were still into the theater not in the movies. The rest of the actors did o.k., Natasa Barbara Gracner, the bar crew, especially the guy who plays Dule, Marjuta Slamic, Jernej Kuntner. The only slightly weaker performances by my opinion were from Manca Dorer and Lara Djurica.
2. The script and directing. The biggest problem for the most of the Slovenian movies and the biggest reason that the Slovenian movies are just tiresome to watch. Well, this one is different. It's funny, simple, positive and most of all, it's the one you can relate to. So, a bow for you, Damjan Kozole.
3. Humor. One of the non-exist able thing in Slovenian production. Operacija Cartier, Trinajstica, Felix Langus, Outsider, To so gadi, V petek zvecer was the only one I can think of right now, that had some funny moments in it, but this one wins them all.
Well, what can I say for the end. Maybe my statement, that this is definitely No.1 among Slovenian movies, doesn't quite hit the spot, but hey, it's the one I never get tired of. And that's the biggest compliment to the crew that made it.
