A rough and thrilling drama about the dilemma of taking the wrong choices. The best feature film at this year’s LET’S CEE in Vienna and Slovenian candidate for the Oscars.
Ivan comes into this world on the background of a corrupted world and a chain of unexpected and nerve wrecking events begins. Ivan’s father Rok, a married businessman whom Mara, his mother obsessively loves, is missing. When she finds out that Rok is accused of a white-collar crime, she gets brutally beaten by his wife’s cronies. Mara and Rok manage to get together, but Mara finds herself in an impossible situation when she has to choose between her lover and her child.
The film received eight trophies at the Festival of Slovenian Film, including the best feature film award for its ‘’vertiginous dance of images and sound that take hold of the viewer already in the first scene and don't let go until the end. A deeply moving comment of the state of mind in contemporary Slovenia, but not only that. His almost hypnotic oscillating between feelings of yearning and desperation is something we are all familiar with, one way or the other."
