Death mood
18 August 2007 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

This Slovenian/Croatian movie starts like a comedy. You come to think a little about the great Czech tradition from the late 60s. The funeral speeches are fun, the father's suicide attempts are fun and so is the shy love history between the hero and the girl.

But without you really noticing, it becomes a rather brutal tragedy and the happy microcosms of this little village is destroyed.

The problem is that you can't really believe neither in the happiness or the opposite for these people, even if they are well acted. An interesting film, which doesn't arise your passions as a watcher. Life and death are mixed, but not in your mind.
