Testament to a lost world...
20 December 2004 | by AutonomeSee all my reviews

An authentic, slice of life type of film which serves as a document of a world which has largely disappeared. It also serves as a testament to known, institutional child abuse which to this day has not been brought to justice; and ordinary people who are corrupted every day in the demeaning, oppressive struggle to survive in the former regime.

A complete and unbiased presentation of the reality of the day. It is at the same time humorous, horrible, inspiring and depressing.

The cinematography, like many Slovenian films, is striking, classical, yet subtle. A soviet or eastern traditional film style with a modern polish that is a very satisfying contrast to Hollywood.

I saw this film at the NSK State in Time/Slovene Avant Garde exhibit in Seattle, November, 2004.

Thank You, Miha.
