Drama
Polona Juh, one of Slovenia's most respected actresses, stars as a bitter working mother whose upper-class marriage is coming apart. Her character registers as a real person, aware of her flaws yet not always capable of overcoming them. None of the other roles is imagined this fully, however, and some are stale archetypes (particularly the woman's boorish, lying husband, who seems to have been flown in from Diary of a Mad Housewife). Writer-director Metod Pevec keeps the story rolling and refreshingly free of bathos; this may be familiar, but it's rarely dull. In Slovenian with subtitles.
