\’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.\’
Needless to say, Mencej has developed the film via Goethe-Institut\’s FIRST FILMS FIRST.
