Winner of best new director at the San Sebastian Film Festival, Jan Cvitkovic's black comedy about the eccentric inhabitants of a small Slovenian town ranks as one of the most startling film discoveries of the year.
Crestfallen hero, Pero, shines in this tragicomedy about love and death, keeping colourful company and hopping from grave to grave as a professional funeral orator!
But Cvitkovic's follow up to the award-winning Bread and Milk
is far from standard 'zany' Balkan fare, and while blindly funny, the film also strays into darker territory, culminating in a wholly unforgettable cinematic experience.
Also screened at San Sebastian Film Festival, Pusan Film Festival, London Film Festival, Torino Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival, Locarno Film Festival. Melbourne premiere.
