Storyline

Vincentas is the best employee at the emergency services station, whose passion is one - gambling in different games. Whenever he lands in some difficult situation, the medic is forced to grab onto something radical to return the money he is constantly losing. An idea strikes Vincentas to create an illegal game related to his profession. Initially the employees at emergency services are the only ones to be attracted to this macabre engagement. Soon enough, however, the idea kicks off and starts spreading like wildfire. The medic colleagues become betting agents, whereas Vincentas takes control of its bank. As financial matters keep on improving, a coworker Ieva starts objecting to the game. A passionate relationship has just unfolded between her and Vincentas. Soon enough he is going to face making a fateful choice - the game or love. Written by Anonymous

Dark movie that lefts some questions unanswered, which is okay
11 November 2013 | by markusbucherSee all my reviews

I watched this movie at the Internationales Fimfestival Heidelberg-Mannheim, Germany. I watched it together with some Lithuanian people. I liked this movie as it is very special.

Technically it is done very well. Not too many effects, nice cuts and setting. The plot is okay but the development of the characters is often not clear. Some decisions they make don't seem to make sense. Especially being a father I didn't understand the way, Ieva handles her son's problems. As the ending is in a way open I had to think a lot about it and the whole movie which is good in my opinion.

The actors play their roles very good. I am looking forward seeing more of them.
