idealist...some correction on previous comment
1 December 2005 | by svarunSee all my reviews

I watched Idealist a couple of years back.And it is truly a masterpiece.Possibly one of the best..if not THE best Slovenian film ever. I would like to correct a couple of viewers from Sweden who made comments on this film.The fact is,that the story tells about a teacher Martin Kacur,played by Radko Polic.Actor Maks Bajc and his character have just minor role in this movie.the film was made by a novel from the biggest Slovenian writer Ivan Cankar.(Martin Kacur) Anyway i am surprised and pleased that others from erode know this magnificent movie too.I would also be glad if this movie would be on DVD some day.There is way too many people that know it.Here in this movie you can find the greatest names of Slovenian cinema and theater.the last song in the scene where saddened Kacur freezes in middle of the field in a snowstorm is sung by the legendary Dusa Pockaj-the legend of Slovenian cinema
