Natasa Barbara Gracner,
Dizzy is a perennial student living in a small double room in a hostel. He never seems to study, but spends his time sleeping, watching TV, and drinking. Marko, a studious freshman from the country, is assigned to the other bed in the room, and he is soon joined by his young, very pregnant, girlfriend Ana. Meanwhile, Dizzy's girlfriend Marina is trying to get Dizzy to make a commitment, but he would prefer to continue his idle ways.Written by
But than again, not an ordinary student movie. Since I discovered and experienced some "dorm-life", I didn't quite find myself in this movie.
Maybe was the scenography, which was 20 years out of date, or maybe was the black and white picture or maybe was just an extraordinary characters, lack of action and a depressive note, especially at the end. Beats me.
So despite that, did I enjoy this movie?
Yes. Some scenes were hilariously funny with very original jokes never seen before. Also good casting (at this point I should mention brilliant play by the freshman Janez Rus) did it's job.
V Leru is undoubtfully one of the best movies made in Slovenija for the past last years, not my favourite, but still, for originality
