Storyline

Family Novak from a small town Velenje is drawn by lot to participate in a TV family quiz. The mother and the daughter are thrilled about appearing on TV, whereas the father and the son do not like the idea that much, especially because the show will take place during the carnival. On their way to the TV show the family gets into a misunderstanding with the police, at the TV station they get confused by a group of dressed up cocks, and things get truly interesting when the family gets to know the quiz moderator Jos Bauer better. Everything about the TV station seems quite different from up close and the family members' values are turned upside down. Written by Official

A solid 5

The recreation of Yugoslavia of the seventies is quite convincing. I loved seeing the studio with the vintage TV cameras and monitors. (Where would anybody find props like that?) The attire was completely believable. It really felt as if the period sequences had been shot then and held in cold storage. The look and feel made me believe that was the way it was back then.

Perhaps, Slovenian/Balkan humour isn't quite the same as on this side of the Iron Curtain, and I don't know what life was like there during the Cold War, so I cannot fault the film for the lack of the touted humour. Funny, like Beauty, is often in the eye of the beholder.

All in all, if I did not not get a big dose Funny, I did get a dose of Life in the good old communist days.
