User Reviews

dry, concise, not a masterpiece but worth seeing
11 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

I quite appreciated this movie, because of its dry and not pretentious style, usage of shots and b/w to reproduce a not-so-happy present society in Slovenia. It's about social issues that hardly will find a prompt answer in a society that present itself as unsteady and in the middle of a deep change.

The director chooses this unpersonal style, through which it obtains the disappearing of its presence in the movie - it's an unobtrusive narrator - and at same time it gives the product a docudrama style quite right.

Well written, it just loses rythm here and then, the second part is not so strong as the first one, but it's short enough not to spiral out its path.

Good work.
