★★★½ Watched 19 May, 2020
Slovene drama about two young men and a young woman whose paths crossed during World War II in Piran. It is competently made and skillfully shot, but nothing, in particular, stands out to me except the fact it was filmed in Piran. A small charming Adriatic town where I used to spend every summer of my childhood and most summers of my adult life up to 2011 when I moved from Europe to South America.
Living so far away and looking from afar, not just upon Slovenia but also Europe as a whole, I’m getting a new appreciation of the places I’ve seen that played part in world history. In 2019 World War II sparked my interest, after my father-in-law lent me a book The Pocket History of the Second World War by Henry Steele Commager (originally published at the end of 1945), so this movie combined my childhood nostalgia with WW2 interest.
