Take Me Somewhere NiceEna Sendijarević IFFR 2019 91′
Refreshing, dryly comedic, strangely shot road movie about Bosnian-Dutch girl’s exploration of her country of origin.
Alma travels to Bosnia to bid farewell to a father she hardly knows. This starts a journey with an unknown destination in which the outwardly indifferent teen discovers herself and her country of origin. A dryly funny road movie that captures the freshness and alienation of adolescence.
Joost Broeren-Huitenga (1982) is a Dutch film and media critic. He is a contributing editor at de Filmkrant, the Netherlands' largest independent film magazine, and film critic at Amsterdam-based daily het Parool.
