On Tour: Jasna Nanut’s Hilarious Comedy in Utrecht

Louis Hartlooper Complex, Utrecht | Tuesday 31 October | 19:00 hours

We’re back on the road with our ENFF On Tour program, which brings captivating cinema to some of the most beautiful cinemas in the Netherlands. We’re thrilled to be visiting LHC in Utrecht, where we will present Jasna Nanut’s brilliant comedy Seventh Heaven

This engaging and thought-provoking film masterfully blends entertainment and introspection. Seventh Heaven is a delightful yet poignant, peculiar, and hilarious tale of a midlife crisis and an unfaithful man teetering on the edge of a nervous breakdown.

This comedy is a rollercoaster ride of unexpected turns, where the only thing dwarfing the main character’s predicaments is his skyrocketing blood pressure. Witness the outstanding performance of Kreso Mikic, one of Croatia’s most accomplished actors and a virtuoso of humor, as he breathes life into this unforgettable character.

The film will be introduced by the film festival’s artistic director Rada Šešić. After the screening, guests are kindly invited to gather over a free cocktail!
