Cool summer film!
18 October 2014 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

I am glad that Jasmila Zbanic made this film. She went a long way since film called Grbavica which made her famous. It is a true and remarkable swing from depressing post war films to a light summer comedy/romance.

I am glad she chose Istria as her shooting location. With its beauty and remarkable people it is one of the gems of European tourist destinations. Land of good people, food and wine! Plot is a typical plot for a summer comedy/romance. A little bit of sun, sea, sex and sex swinging. Istria is so typical of that, and plot fits nicely in it. Beautifully written with nice dose of Balkan humor. Although, Istrians would be very angry if I would put them in the Balkan framework, Croatians usually do, but trust me Croatia and with it Istria belongs in a Balkan frame of mind.

Acting is excellent. I heard Ms. Zbanic once said that she works only with the best actors, and they truly are. There was no over acting present, which sometimes happens with not such a good Balkan actors. None of that in this film! All of these actors belong to the top level of world acting and I hope they achieve their shooting stars dreams.

All in all tow thumbs up! If you want to have good dinner with your sweetheart, and later some good times with him/her (I think you get my drift) this is a film to watch! Otherwise you should see it any ways. It might improve your day. It certainly made mine better.
