The film is sometimes a little poorly filmed, but the dialogs and the incredible realism of the situation (not the one about the coma, but of Slovenian society) make this film a little Goodbye Lenin of the Balkans: the communist worker waking up after ten years of "day-dreaming" just to find out that his world has disappeared. I reckon the plot is in the end a little too simple, he's like a superhero and so on...that's not what I'm talking about. The movie gives the sensation of being in Yugoslavia and shows the mentality of an enthusiastic worker that really believes in socialism. And as I talked with some Yugoslavian friends, it is pretty accurate too: a Macedonian girl told me that she has her childhood in the movie.
So my opinion is that Slovenian Can do better, but this is already a good movie.
