a very nice meeting with Macedonian film makers in Sitges
25 January 2006 | by psychomimicoSee all my reviews

well since i get hooked on IMDb and traveled trough all this users comments , i felt like commenting to.hope so will be understandable due to my language.first at all i'am not giving at it 10 out of 10 for pricing it like a one of the very rare Macedonian movies coming out into this Hollywood polluted world,but because of the visionary and surrealistic way of seeing were the world is heading to, even after this comments survive us.i had chance to meet the directors in the festival of Catalonia - Sitges of horror and Si-Fi and congratulate them for making it and bringing it to the festival,where i went to after seeing the program for the year 1999.to bad that was shown on Wednesday night and when was Barcelona football club playing. so the auditorium in Sitges was almost deserted.i could not find it on DVD nowhere ,especialy in Spain were i live.the surrealism in the movie is like seeing a mixture between Jodorowski ,Buñuel,Lynch and a very stylish Tarantino.the Santa Claus will make you feel you don't want any Christmas presents.i hope one day it will become a cult movie and be possible for the future generation to admire it. pozdravi od makedonceto od sitges.
