Storyline

If we were to choose one man who's got everything going for him, then Lazar Perkov would be an excellent choice. He is young, good-looking, has a beautiful wife, lovely little boy, great house and a good job as a hospital physician. In fact, everyone calls him Lucky. Nothing's missing - except maybe Lucky himself. When Lucky is involved in a disastrous car crash and mysteriously saved from a sure death, his life begins to change... (written and directed by Milcho Manchevski, with Borce Nacev, Vesna Stanojevska, Vladimir Jacev, Sabina Ajrula... Toronto International Film Festival 2007)

User Reviews

 
Visually impressive drama very light on horror.
12 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Doctor Lazar Perkov has just returned to his apartment in Skopje from his parents' villa in the lakes district after a year convalescing from a near-fatal car crash.He tries to return to work at the hospital,but his nightmares won't help him.He forgets things,fears his recovery isn't stable and has now had his first visit from the disturbed souls of the dead(the old lady and the creepy looking guy with unbaptized infant).I saw "Senki" during Warsaw Film Festival and I was a little bit disappointed.The film is too long and quite dull in spots.It offers some beautiful photography of Macedonian landscapes,some scenes are pretty moving,but the horror elements are weak.Still there are four lovely sex scenes with a good dose of female nudity to keep me happy.6 out of 10.
