28 September 2014 | by (Greece thessaloniki) – See all my reviews

Good casting and acting, a story about domestic violence in which the director observes his characters but does not implicate them in any dramatic tension that lasts long enough to boost the narrative.Towards the end i expected a closure but i realized that it was a full circle. Some viewers like open ended films because they can fill with their imagination what follows next. I prefer a film that is a closed universe and makes a statement.The filmmaker was critical in the way he portrayed Croatian manhood in an indirect way, showing men to indulge in heavy drinking, fornication, violence etc, but refuses to take a clear position.It felt sometimes that i was watching a documentary about.It was not a bad film but i don't like obscurantists filmmakers, i like a firm a political statement about the affairs portrayed.
