I didn't know Slovenian cinema was so good
25 April 2008 | by threeJaneSee all my reviews

Something about this film reminds me of French cinema. However in this film, the beautiful young woman is independent, brave, and she works for a living.

The script is very, very good. I love the stalker and his history, the way the married man gets dumped, the relationship between Dusa and her mother. Dusa's job (teaching dancing) provides opportunity to show off Polona Juh's considerable dancing skills when she uses the studio after hours.

The whole 'offbeat' thing is a bit too offbeat; trying a bit too hard. The same with the romance. These are just minor criticisms of an otherwise good film.
