Not funny, but ridiculous...
19 November 2011 | by (Republic of Macedonia) – See all my reviews

A decent working guy who wakes up after 10 years from a coma (of some kind…?) and finds himself in a different political system he cannot quite comprehend. This refers to the transition of communism in former Yugoslavia and independent Slovenia. A topic quite worn out, but… OK, worth to give it a shut.

I deeply regret entering the cinema and watching this semi-amateur, wanna-be professional film. One can not detach which segment of the film is worse, whether is the poor, explicit lines which the hopelessly casted protagonists deliver just to have justification for the boring, predictable story, or the technical aspects of directing and cinematography that strongly resemble Spanish soap operas from the 90-ties. If this is the future for the Balkan cinematography, then it's time for a cruel reality check. Insulting viewers intelligence by trying to throw in some cheap feeling of nostalgia and little intimate family comedy acts, is inadmissible. One thing that slightly stands out from the whole tragedy is the main character, who occasionally manages to extort a few sympathies, but trust me, that's all…
