Macedonian account of life in a remote village.
26 April 2016 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

A curiosity with its elements of Russian and Greek cinema, this Macedonian film is naive but has the novelty of it's unfamiliar setting going for it.

In the distant, poverty stricken village the local official puts in his time raping the none too comely women while the school ladies have contact with visitors, the dream being to obtain wealth overseas. Meanwhile the gamine teacher has an innocent affair with the boy who brings water by donkey. Add in folklorico elements - the procession led by the teacher dressed in tree branches. Finale has the men marching off - to war? Flamboyant acting.
