Slovenia/Croatia/Denmark 2013. Dir: Nejc Gazvoda. 102 min. DCP

VANCOUVER PREMIERE | Slovene director-to-watch Nejc Gazvoda, whose award-winning debut film A Trip screened as part of EUFF 2013, deftly sidesteps any sophomore slumps with his enchanting second feature, a playful, sensitively-shot lesbian love story. “Due to a technical problem, a plane from Denmark heading to Greece lands at a Slovene airport, with the passengers eventually taken to a Ljubljana hotel for the night. Quiet young Dane Iben (Mia Jexen) can’t face waiting in the hotel, and asks Tina (A Trip’s Nina Rakovec), who drove the minibus from the airport, to drive her around the city ... A delicately crafted charmer of a film, for a while Nejc Gazvoda’s colourful, funny, and insightful film feels like a lesbian equivalent of Before Sunset as two young women wander the warm nighttime streets of Ljubljana, talking, having fun, and gradually coming under each other’s spell” (Mark Adams, Screen Daily). In Slovenian and Danish with English subtitles.
