Product Description

A Wonderful Night in Split (Ta Divna Splitska Noc) - Amazon.com Exclusive

The setting is a ghetto in the medieval city of Split, where several stories unfold between ten o'clock and midnight on New Year's Eve.

While crowds gather in the old square to listen to a rock concert, three American sailors wander the streets and alleys looking for a prostitute and a drug pusher double-crosses his dealer. A widow and her grieving child, and an addict desperate for a fix, are pulled into a scheme to ship heroin to Munich, and a young couple plots a rendezvous before midnight. Lives are unraveled on this "wonderful night," amid fireworks and the countdown to midnight.

"A Wonderful Night in Split is, in my opinion, the best domestic movie shot since Croatia became an independent country in the early 90s. This creation should be watched and remembered. It is art in its highest form, bordering on genius." –Hollywood Magazine

A Wonderful Night in Split is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Croatian with English subtitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

4.0 out of 5 stars A ...not so Wonderful Night In Split December 16, 2008
Format:DVD
This Croatian import from 2005 is a well handled debut from director Arsen Anton Ostojic. The film's promoters seemed to want to tout it as a Tarantinoesque thriller, where all of a city's underbelly is exposed in one seemingly endless night. And don't get me wrong, that isn't a bad description, but I felt that, like most true pieces of art-house cinema, it's best to watch without expectation and let the film absorb you. This is something that Ostojic seems both suited to and qualified for. Straight away the audience dives or is driven, depending on your sensibilities, deep into the heart of this medieval Central European city on a modern New Years eve. Using relatively simple black and white photography Ostojic and his crew show us an enviroment of tight back alleys, dingy bars, seedy inns, and a town square brimming with citizens for midnight concert. The later serves as the esential base of the film where all major characters pass through or connect, all be it unwittingly, as they traverse the live and animated city. It is in these moments that we realize just how small Split really is and credit to Ostojic, who if it weren't for these moments unfamiliar audiences would think the setting was Budapest or Warsaw and it's the quaintness of the eerie town that gives it it's charm.
As for the plot I'm afraid, again as most true pieces of art-house cinema, to give away a little is to give away a lot. The general idea is that the film is split (pun intended) into three points of view, that of course criss-cross and overlap throughout. The major characters include a two-bit hood who has fallen into a drug trafficer's plot (the most thirlling aspect in this reviewer's mind).

5.0 out of 5 stars Indie surprise! July 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A group of unknown's make a really wonderful impact with this flick. Not wishing to give the story away, suffice to say you will be entertained regardless of the seemingly unpopular style in which the movie is presented. I was pleasantly surprised by the talents displayed.
A trio of stories the interlink with a most splendiferous outcome - hence, the surprise. Some times it might be good to include that this movie is cerebral, not what many movie goers seem to like. But well worth watching for certain.
