A good portrayal of the human spirit
22 November 2003 | by pazuzu-1See all my reviews

The film opens with a violent scene of the protagonist using masochistic measures to downplay his frustration.Its all about Filip who just cant accept the fact that he is as normal as everyone else and craves to become important and famous.A false superego provides him with messages from God that he is the chosen one.Thus he is undecided as to whether marry his fiance or try to live a life of celibacy in pursuit of the supreme.Filip's own emotional turmoil is shown to the full extent,with excellent support from his elder brother.The film contains underlying spiritual overtones too and is a good portrayal of the human spirit.
