Six young friends decide that the 2015 spring equinox is a great reason to throw a party. Two of them will prepare the "venue", the other two will get the booze, and the last two will get the weed. And right before midnight, they'll meet at the party to welcome the arrival of spring. Or not, depending on how they handle the situations they find themselves in while trying to run their seemingly simple errands, in which we get to know Zagreb, its life and nightlife, and the characters get to know themselves and each other.
I've been expecting this film for a long time and it has not disappointed me. Yes, there are many flaws, but considering how much it has been done without a budget and with a bunch of kids who had the will to do this, I can call this a really good film. It is very relatable to the new generation, it's funny and it has a charisma. On a more technical level there are things that could or perhaps should be changed, but people who worked on it, worked hard, that's why it took so long to finally put it out there. It is quite different from any other Croatian film and I think that is what the director and the crew were going for. They were/are tired of monotony of Croatian film, of the same old topics that are being reused over and over again. They wanted to be different and new and do it in their own style under the influence of god knows how many things and they did it. The purpose of this film wasn't meant to be educational or to win all the big awards, it was to show that a Croatian film can be something different, it was to wake up young people to start doing something of their own and to pay attention to Croatian film rather than just watching blockbusters. This film represents all the stupidity of young people living their best life, it was meant to be kind of "stupid" and "goofy" and "sarcastic," it does not have to be critically acclaimed as an amazing film, it only has to win the young audience's heart and wake them up and I personally think that it has done that so far, but is also going to do that in the future and I think that's what Croatian cinema needs.
