THE PRIEST’S CHILDREN
SVEĆENIKOVA DJECA
2013, InterFilm, 93 min, Croatia, Dir: Vinko Brešan

Catholic priest Don Fabijan (Krešimir Mikić) is distressed to see his island parish shrinking in population, so he enlists a condom vendor (Nikša Butijer) and a pharmacist (Dražen Kuhn) to sabotage birth control methods - a plan that produces quite a few unintended complications. Working with frequent collaborators including writer-composer Mate Matišić, director Vinko Brešan handles a touchy subject with humor that shifts from whimsical to sardonic, making this comedic cautionary tale one of the year’s biggest box office hits in Croatia. In Croatian with English subtitles.
