19 Aug STUNNING REVIEW for FFF’s RIDERS on SCREEN DAILY!
‘Filmmaker Dominik Mencej announces himself as a significant new talent with this achingly tender road movie.’
‘… feels very much like the arrival of a fully-formed and significant new European talent.’
‘Tomaz, superbly incarnated by Sturbej in what should be a star-making performance, comes across like a central-European cousin of River Phoenix’s narcoleptic Mikey.’
‘… this emotionally resonant, multilayered picture is an amiably unfussy immersion in a bygone time — the richly textured backdrop for one of the most convincing and unsentimental evocations of loving friendship in recent memory.’
Neil Young wrote about Dominik Mencej’s debut RIDERS which has just premiered in Sarajevo Film Festival’s Main Competition.
Needless to say, Mencej has developed the film via Goethe-Institut’s FIRST FILMS FIRST.
