Jovan starts dating Maja casually, no strings attached. But her mysterious and shady behaviour begins to disturb him. Director points out: ‘’This is a thriller depicting coming of age through a destructive love affair. It is a labyrinth of emotional and subconscious levels of this kind of relationship. I want to portray fears and pain that appear when two lovers are suppressing their emotions. It depicts how digital communication, pornography and vanity obstruct true emotions and love”. The director has been twice awarded at the Cinefondation competition of Cannes Film Festival for his short films ’Run Rabbit Run’ (2003) and ’Minus’ (2007).

Deze regisseur is een sterke en frisse nieuwe stem van de Servische cinema. De film had zijn wereldpremière op het Cannes Film Festival in 2015.


Jovan begint nonchalant met Maja te daten. Maar haar mysterieuze en duistere gedrag begint hem te storen. Director legt uit: ”Dit is een thriller over een destructieve liefdesrelatie. Het is een labyrint van emotionele en onbewuste niveaus in dit soort relaties. Ik wil angsten en pijn uitbeelden die ontstaan wanneer twee geliefden hun emoties onderdrukken. Het toont hoe de digitale communicatie, pornografie en ijdelheid ware emoties en liefde belemmeren”. De regisseur is tweemaal bekroond met de Cinefondation competitie van Cannes Film Festival voor zijn korte film ‘Run Rabbit Run’ (2003) en ‘Minus’ (2007).
