A Wonderfull Night In Split

A Kroation film that gives a few stories that play between 10:00pm and 12:00pm on some new years night. All the stories play in a small part of the city of Split and give a glimpse of the ‘dark side’ of the city, especially drug-related. In a way the film is a drama, but also in a way it is a (black) comedy. It sure has some weird elements, strange characters and funny dialogues. It starts confrontatingly realistic, but ends in a mirage. It is spoken in Kroatian, has great camera work and is beautifully shot in high-contrast black and white. Also it has a dense atmosphere, since it mostly plays in very small allies. A very nice film!
