ON THE OTHER SIDE
S ONE STRANE
2016, 85 min, Croatia/Serbia, Dir: Zrinko Ogresta

Middle-aged nurse Vesna (Ksenija Marinković) is living a quiet life in Zagreb when her phone rings; at the other end of the line is husband Žarko (Lazar Ristovski), a convicted war criminal who’d left her and their children 20 years ago. Shot in long takes that draw viewers along to its surprising final twist, ON THE OTHER SIDE swept Croatia’s Pula Film Festival. “This gripping psychological drama brings a new twist to the subject of postwar ex-Yugoslavia … emotionally complex, tautly assembled and powerfully acted.” - Alissa Simon, Variety.


HAPPY ENDINGS

Ani (Areta Curkovic) and best friend Ljilja (Daria Lorenci) are struggling to keep their new Zagreb massage salon in business, but their loan shark is losing patience and their adult children keep asking for money, too. Robbing a bank might do the trick - and as it turns out, a friend of theirs is an assistant manager at one. In Croatian with English subtitles.
