Storyline

Mirjana is returning to Croatia from Germany where she spent some time as a refugee. She is pregnant. Now, when the war in Croatia is over and her visa expired, Mirjana is coming back to her family in a remote and devastated village. Her family is trying to move on with their lives after the war. They rebuild their house and they are trying to find a new husband for their pregnant daughter. Being patriarchal and devoted to their tradition they believe a woman needs to have a husband and a child has to have a father. Of course, the child and the father have to be of the same nationality. Problems start when Mirjana gives a birth to a boy with Asian features. The family and the neighbors are shocked. Mirjana¡¦s rigid father refuses to accept a grandchild of a different nationality, not to mention the one of a different race! Mirjana and her son are forced to leave. She returns only when her father falls seriously ill and requests to see his grandson before he dies. Written by Anonymous

Forgive me for Kung Fu -
27 November 2013 | by elmarjukicSee all my reviews

If you like movies with everyday characters in a small-town ( this time a story is set in southern European environment) then you'll like this piece. It's not a feel-good-movie, rather an unpleasant demonstration of old-fashioned way of thinking. The story is not exaggerating anything, coming originally from these parts I recognize the argot as identical and not at all artificial. The performance of the actors is, in a way, a documentary-like in many ways. If I sum it up : Prejudice and narrow-mindedness expressed when something new is coming from outwards. But, at least for someone with my taste, a very interesting line of "how will it continue".
