Slovanian cinéaste Zuzana Liová extracts excellent performances from Miroslav Krobot and Judit Bárdos in a film about a house.
What would human beings do if they do not have a roof over their heads in the form of a house ? All human beings regardless of how much they earn long for their own houses as it is through their houses that they are able to assess their identities.These are some key points expressed in Slovenian film "Dom".It is a nice film for families in which the universal significance of a house is marvelously depicted by Slovanian director Zuzana Liová. Her début film shows us that a house is not merely made up of bricks and cement but also of people who live in it.Although a large part of this film concentrates about the hardships faced by an old man regarding the actual construction of his house,what appeals the viewers most is the manner in which this background is used to depict another pertinent theme :lives of ordinary people especially lives of youngsters and their quest for their roots.Actors Miroslav Krobot and Judit Bárdos are honest in their representation of two different aspects of a family which would like to be united at all costs despite various apparent obstacles.Film critic Lalit Rao got the chance to watch this film at Alliance Française de Bangalore where it was screened as part of 18th European Union Film Festival in India.
