Determined to build the best football club in the country, Dimitry hires the German coach, Rudolph Spitz, to galvanize his rag tag team but - when the first Nazi tanks roll through the city and Rebecca, the beautiful daughter of a local banker, elopes with his star player, all Dimitry's plans must change.
If you did see the indie classic - Living in Oblivion, be prepared for another one - Slovenian way. The story follows a young film maker Gina ( who is very much autobiographically based ) on her one and only mission to make a debut film. One mission, one vision, but a seriously difficult task; Involving a mafia spy, transvestite flat mate, tea-cocaine drinking granny, cheating boyfriend, and a babooshka- Russian-doll with president Bush all over it. Confusing? It's about friendship, and young people from ex-Yugoslavia who live, work and dream in Prague. It interconnects many different stories however it's essentially a film about friendship, thrust and ultimate discovery of a cruel reality. Guerilla film-making is a difficult task when your resources are limited. Film's moto is make movies not love and somehow Gina did managed that despite all the disasters during the shooting. A very promising debut project from Janja Glogovac , definitely a name worth remembering. Andreja Kmetovic
