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 typical Slovenian family attends a TV quiz.
23 August 2012 | by vito-didaSee all my reviews

''Kruha in iger''(Bread and Circuses) is a movie from 2011, while the story is going on in 1987. Jonas Žnidaršič was the most famous actor in the movie, accept him and Janez Škof others aren't the type of actors people were looking forward to see in this movie. It is a typical Slovenian film such as the last name of the lead protagonists, family Novak. They drive to Ljubljana, so they can compete in a TV quiz, which is very similar to ''The Wheel of Fortune''. The 80's nostalgia from Yugoslavia is also involved in the movie. This was Klemen Dvornik's first motion picture; his other notable work is a Slovenian internet series ''Prepisani''(Rewritten). I still wonder about a choice of the movie's title, since the story itself didn't 'deliver' bread neither circuses. I give this movie a rating 4 of 10, since it didn't had as much 'funny' jokes as I thought it would. To end my review, I have to say I give this movie a 'thumbs down'.
