Storyline

Marijana's life revolves around her family, whether she likes it or not. They live on top of one another in a tiny apartment, driving one another crazy. Then her controlling father has a stroke and is left completely bedridden, and Marijana takes his place as head of the clan. Soon, she is working two jobs to keep everything afloat, while her mother and disabled brother do their best to scupper the ship. Driven to the edge, Marijana finds comfort in seedy sex with random strangers; and this taste of freedom leaves her wanting more. But now that she has finally found freedom, what's she meant to do with it? Written by Kinorama

Good one!
17 March 2020 | by rinakarinakaSee all my reviews

Really interesting debut from young Croatian female director Hana Jusic.

Well played, unpretentious ( one of rare example of ex Yu films that has this quality - unpretentious ), and from time to time fun.

Don't skip it!
