Tribute: New Croatian Cinema selection opens tonight

Tribute: New Croatian Cinema will officially open with tonight’s screening of “I Believe in Angels” by Niksa Svilicic. Prior to the screening, audience will be greeted by Ines Pacek, Croatian cultural attaché and Dubravka Lakic, selector of international programme for the Cinema City Festival.

Lead hero in this charming Mediterranean comedy is Sime the postman, one of the most popular figures in a small town on a remote island. Sime is very intelligent and the locals hold him in high regard and deem him to be a genius due to his extensive knowledge on everything that happens. Unlike residents of this small town, viewers soon discover the secret to his success. He is, in fact, fascinated by other people’s destinies and so he perfected a technique of opening letters imperceptibly, forming comprehensive databases based on data found in those letters. One day, very attractive Dea moves to the island and quickly becomes a wooing target of all the men in the village. However, Dea has a secret of her own and stays indifferent to all their attempts at charming. Due to circumstances she accidentally discovers postman’s secret hobby while she herself starts a correspondence with mysterious Klara. Sime the postman uses the knowledge from that unusual correspondence to win beautiful Dea’s heart and after a while she accepts his wooing and everything seem idyllic. However, jealous locals soon turn against the postman. Finally we discover Dea had a “devious plan” all along, which brings incredible outcome and a twist at the end of the film.
