SYNOPSIS:
The year is two thousand and something. An elderly couple live alone
in a flat in Sarajevo, with their own rituals: drinking coffee,
playing cards, watching TV. The husband (Dad) has had a stroke and
although he is still physically strong, he has difficulties in
communication. The wife (Mum) is a lively elderly lady who is, after
50 years, now using the husbands disability to change the things
around in this old-fashioned, patriarchal family. Dad must not allow
that and he opposes it in the only way he can, with physical force.

DIRECTOR’S BIOGRAPHY:
Faruk Loncarevic was born in 1975. He graduated from the film and TV
directing department of the Academy of Performing Arts in Sarajevo in
2000. He has worked in theatre, on TV and film. He has made several
shorts, and his first feature film is "JUDGMENT DAY - PREVIEW”,
documentary about tsunami in Southeast Asia.

FILMOGRAPHY:
2006 - Mama i tata
2006 - JUDGMENT DAY - PREVIEW, documentary
2001 - Pauza za kafu, short
1999 - Lice, short
DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT:
This film is a story of an elderly couple - the husband suffers a
stroke, and the wife uses that to pay him back for fifty years of
life of deceit, stubbornness, violence and everything else that
happens ’behind closed doors’. This need to show their intimacy
dictated the form, i.e. the reality-show style, as notoriously
voyeuristic, the last cry of the magic box - television, which has
become the altar of a new religion. Our heroes are closed inside the
box, they cannot get out, but unlike what we normally see in such
programs, they are not young, pretty, ambitious and ready for any
kind of romantic adventure. They are, in fact, real people, our
parents, our grandparents, maybe even we ourselves, people whose
foundations are slipping, and without such foundations all that we
have always taken for granted, the kindness, morality and love of our
lives crumble down, and all that is left hatred, violence and
instincts. I want to trap viewers with the box as the bait, and then,
just for a short while, offer them something different from what the
box normally gives them.
