Does It Hurt? - The First Balkan DogmaAneta Lesnikovska IFFR 2007 98′
For a change, a true film about a fictional event, instead of the other way round. Young Macedonian-Dutch filmmaker lies to her best friends and in this way makes the first Balkan (and Dutch) Dogma film.
The Man of No ReturnKatya Grokhovskaya, Peter Stepin IFFR 2007 104′
The lives of various families, freely derived from Tolstoy, all unhappy in their own way, cross each other in a small provincial town on the Volga river. A surprisingly powerful graduation film with great tempo and convincing acting in a genre that was so far unknown in Russian cinema.
