Ordinary movie for ordinary people
19 September 2015 | by n_dimitrovski83See all my reviews

The film is picturing one Macedonian story for the marginalized group of people. In the center is Lazar, young boy, who is struggling between his personal problems, family and moral dilemmas about the job that he works. The film is building its plot slowly, unpretentiously and realistic. The acting and directing are good and at the end the movie will make you think a little about the society where we live. The plot takes place in Macedonia, but it could be also a story about a marginalized group of people anywhere in the world. This is third feature of the director Svetozar Ristevski, after the first one, also Macedonian production "Mirage", and the second, which is Canadian production, "Dear Mr. Gacy". Worth watching. Good seven from me.
