A horrible movie
26 November 2008 | by GregorioshoplateiaSee all my reviews

This movie is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The director does not know how to establish a sense of space, it's script is just not suited for film as it is obvious that people working on this came from literary circles without knowing the laws of cinema. In fact this movie even shows the superior complex of such circles where they look down on film as a lesser artform than literature and where they think that they can easily make great films. The film tries to be artistic but fails miserably. The acting is theatrical and the director does not realise that the actors should act for the camera. Instead you get a bunch of theatrical shots with static camera and bad framing, where persons walk in and out of the scenes without the director establishing the reason for this... Unreasonable placements of camera that show exactly the wrong things, shots being too full of everything, no focus at all... To think some people place the works of Duletič above such masterpieces of slovenian cinema such as Vesna or Kekec, simply because of their supposed artistic qualities ( that is the film was made after a book of a classic slovenian writer which in their mind makes it automatically artistic ) is a crime against film as an artform.
