2007 Oscar Submission from Slovenia for Best Foreign Language Film
Slovenian filmmaker Jan Cvitkovic follows up his award-winning BREAD AND MILK with this darkly comic and ironic film. Pero, renowned as his village's best funeral orator, embellishes his eulogies with his own personal confessions and editorializing. Fun-loving by nature, he has several comic misadventures with best bud Shooki and their girlfriends Renata and Ida, but behind their madcap pursuits lie deep frustrations and darker moods.
