THE PRIEST’S CHILDREN
SVEĆENIKOVA DJECA
2013, InterFilm, 93 min, Croatia, Dir: Vinko Brešan

Catholic priest Don Fabijan (Krešimir Mikić) is distressed to see his island parish shrinking in population, so he enlists a condom vendor (Nikša Butijer) and a pharmacist (Dražen Kuhn) to sabotage birth control methods - a plan that produces quite a few unintended complications. Working with frequent collaborators including writer-composer Mate Matišić, director Vinko Brešan handles a touchy subject with humor that shifts from whimsical to sardonic, making this comedic cautionary tale one of the year’s biggest box office hits in Croatia. In Croatian with English subtitles.


WILL NOT STOP THERE
NIJE KRAJ
2008, 100 min, Croatia, Dir: Vinko Bresan

Vinko Bresan’s deliciously cynical black comedy is told from the point of view of Djuro (Predrag “Predjo” Vusovic), a jaded porn star enlisted by Croatian war veteran-turned-private detective Martin to help find his missing love, Desa. But Desa has gotten herself mixed up in a Serbian prostitution ring, and when the two finally find her, they must contend with a money-grubbing pimp to get her back. Winner of the Audience Award at the Pula Film Festival. “Mixes sex, violence and humor into a rollicking whole.” – Variety. In Croatian with English subtitles.
