To call Forecast mediocre film will be a prize. It is helpless. So are the actors on screen no matter of the Balkanic Macedonian salad they mix in languages where F--- is among the most preferable of all verbs to hear. The director is lost in her lack of ideas unable to reach the movie construction and out of this pitiful efforts has appeared a shabby straw hut with some pieces of rugs waving in the windless beach. As it is the kindergarten game with a lot of pretensions for deep thoughts and anti globalists imitations among a group of rather stupid boys pretending to be playing the game of the mighty powers. Without inspiration all the declarations will remain plain slogans with quite transparent meaning. The main actress is a quite woman but she was given absolutely no chance to show what she is capable of by the helpless director. I would suggest neglect it.
