Grim Drama
20 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Croation drama taking place shortly after the Balkan War, Metastaze is a grim and dark look at humanity. Zagreb is the setting, as four friends who share in common their love of the local football(soccer) team. Krpa is a rowdy guy who abuses his wife and fights constantly, and is also a thief who robs stores. He is the first of the wonderful people portrayed.

Filip has just returned from drug rehabilitation in Spain, and his parents attempt to convince him to find a job to stay out of trouble. He would rather hang out in a bar with his friends.

Kizo is a drunk who lives with his mother. His father is dead and he is shown buying beer and cat food and feeding a litter of kittens. Peta would love this man.

The last winner is Dejo, and he has the misfortune of being the only Serb in the group. He is also a heroin addict who owes money to everyone.

The four buddies get involved in a deal to transport drugs inside a bag of potatoes. Naturally, the merry band of misfits do not have a pleasant journey.
