New Grlic film spreads over the region
by Vladan Petkovic
It’s a story about two brothers, played by Serbia’s Miki Manojlovic and Slovenia’s Bojan Navojec, their wives and mistresses, and children who don’t know who their real fathers are. Double lives and parallel relationships are blended into a bittersweet story about the relentless quest for love and happiness and the terrible consequences that arise when one ends up in a bed that is not one’s own. Croatia’s Daria Lorenci, Ksenija Marinkovic and Natasa Dorcic also star.
Back in 2006, Grlic, one of the most important Yugoslav representatives of the Prague film school (which also includes Emir Kusturica, Goran Markovic, Goran Paskaljevic and Srdjan Karanovic), made Border Post, the first film after the breakdown of Yugoslavia to be co-produced by all the territories of the former country. Border Post had sold over 200,000 admissions in all territories combined.
With Just Between Us, Grlic becomes the only filmmaker in the region whose films open almost day-and-date in all the co-production territories.
