A poetic, comical look on love and memories of vivacious 80-year-old couple directed by Jan Cvitkovic, Cannes Award-Winning director from Slovenia. Dutch Premiere


Viktor and Ana have spent their whole lives together. All they have is each other, and all that remains are the little things, the small events. They live in a modest house with an idyllic old-fashioned rustic feel to it. Are they still attracted to each other, can they still stand each other? Time is a blur, and old resentments can surface in a split second. But are they real? Can they come between them? A black and white gem and winner of four Vesna awards at the 18th Festival of Slovenian Film.
