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