'Goran' the Miserable
9 April 2017 | by krocheavSee all my reviews

The synopsis for this story sounded halfway reasonable:- A taxi driver just wants to drive his cab and take care of his blind wife. The introductory visuals even looked halfway interesting:- A string of interesting bleak shots of frozen Croatia landscapes but it's basically downhill from there - it drags a poorly developed, meager plot over the familiar ground of mistaken identity and revenge (well sort of). This ugly abomination continues to drag the hapless viewer through a frozen wasteland peopled by uninteresting (if not worthless) characters. None of which really warrant any of our valuable time - especially as it meanders around 90mins.

The lead performance by Franjo Dijak is simultaneously frustrating as well as being the movies only saving grace. It's all in his tortured facial expressions. Trouble is, these expressions are brought about by a script so ambiguously unworthy - so full of its own self satisfied nastiness that it's eventually rendered undeserving of any serious consideration. Writer Gjermund Gisvold and director Nevid Marasovic appear too busy copying the dreary work of the now overrated Cohen Bros to create any characters we can feel for or build situations we can identify with (unless of course you happen to be as fouled-up as those who make up this depraved mess).

After unrelenting acts of moral vulgarity and murder in desolate snow bound cabins - the movie ends ridiculously at a sunny beach with those left alive sitting on a bench looking foolish. Whoever thought the droning ambiance played under several scenes would add to the uneasiness of the situations - should have given some thought to the audience they were driving crazy - thinking their sound system had developed a feedback or earthing problem. Maybe those who can nurture projects like these might consider a new career. Are we intended to look upon this movie as something of an art form, a tragedy, a super dark comedy, or even as a horror story? If so, then it needs something more substantial to make it worthy. It's just another low spot for the World Movies trash fest and not much of a creative recommendation for the Croatian movie industry.
