Storyline

A razor sharp comedy all about relationships and red tape. Kreso is at a loose end. A fully qualified biologist, he's about to hit middle age, disillusioned, out of work and stuck in a marriage that should probably never have started. At least his son still looks up to him. Meanwhile, the country's cash-strapped government is busily looking for unique ways to save money, and now, over 20 years after the 1990's war, sets its sights on the widows of fallen soldiers. Anyone unmarried but in a new relationship will no longer be allowed a military pension. Enforcing such an unpopular measure requires a new department: The Ministry of Love, whose purpose will be to gather information on any widows breaking the new law. With nothing to lose, Kreso agrees to be put forward by his pushy father in law. The only problem is, together with his eccentric partner, Sikic, he's completely the wrong man for the job.

A modern satire that is 100% true
26 August 2017 | by MachinaExSee all my reviews

As said in the summary, this satire is 100% in modern Croatien society, a man who is employed in a job which he did not hope he shall ever have nor would find him self in situation that he needs it. The theme which this movie explorer is a good one (parasitic way of life and not taking responsibility for your actions) just shows how the society in Croatia is ready to "let others drown, while they live", and a state that is only seeking to make something out of nothing. The two main characters are a very good representation of a typical job seeking Croat who are just looking to provide for them self's in a hard economy. This movie has it's many flaws, both somebody who is from Croatia or the from other close country's is going to find a good 100% true satire of the society which he lives!
