Punk's not dead is a remarkable black-comedy by Vladimir Blazevski. It is about a reunion of old punk band. Mirsa is a punk who is trying to put up with the struggles of everyday life in Skopje. One day he was offered to play for some multicultural-happening in Debar. Actually, all he ever wants is to play again with his punk band, so he accepts the offer. The next step is to find all former members of the band and make them play again... His ex-girlfriend is coming back to him and she is helping him to find the former members of the band. Punk's not dead gives good message - we should keep on trying to make our dreams come true. Written by
When we saw the movie in Sofia Film Fest 2012 program we were like "there's no chance it's gonna be a good punk movie..." ... I mean... Macedonian punk movie, written and directed by a 58 year old guy... come on... :) But after a couple of beers we decided to give it a chance. And my oh my... What a surprise it was...
The movie is very very good! Script is great, filming is great, actors are surprisingly good... the music... everything...
Now I suppose people who are not from the Balkans might not get most of it... but if you're local you'll surely love it. Everything is so real and it's like... I was totally speechless.
I don't want to give any spoilers by speaking about the story - just go and see it! You won't regret it! 10/10 - probably the best Balkan movie I've ever seen!
(bow) Bravo na Vladimir Blazevski i vsichki ostanali - strahoten film (bow)
