Product Description

Fine Dead Girls (Fine Mertve Djevojke) – Amazon.com Exclusive

A report of a kidnapped child triggers an investigation that uncovers nightmarish conditions in a seedy apartment building in Zagreb: none of the residents are as they seem and when they learn the truth about each other, the pervasive climate of mistrust in the building explodes into violence.

The hostility and misery of the characters' lives project vivid echoes of Croatia's recent past, as the country slowly emerges from years of ethnic violence during the Balkans war.

"A stylishly-lensed film noir." -Variety

"A choice chunk of Croatian allegory which succeeds nicely!" -Village Voice

Fine Dead Girls is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Croatian with English subtitles.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Readying oneself to watch a film that highlights poverty and sexism in Zagreb may be a daunting task, but Fine Dead Girls is well worth the effort. It is astounding how director Dalibor Matanic has managed to bring some initial absurdist humor into this disturbing Croatian tale about a lesbian couple, Iva (Olga Pakalovic) and Marija (Nina Violic), who rent a room in what they hope will be a peaceful apartment complex. Immediately upon moving in, they begin to learn just how perverted, unsanitary, and violent the other tenants are. The extremity of these other characters is what gives Fine Dead Girls a slightly humorous edge. However, all jokes end as the landlord's dim-witted son, Daniel (Kresimir Mikic), continually preys on Iva until the couple is forced to take action. Though the landlord, Blaz (Ivica Vidovic), has a sharp-tongued, homophobic wife who is afraid the girls have AIDS, Blaz remains a sympathetic character throughout this utter tragedy. Beautifully shot, Fine Dead Girls' several romantic moments are handled with cinematic creativity, while scenes alternating Iva and Marija's love and their external troubles build suspense effectively. The film steers clear of melodrama, despite its being filled to the brim with doomed characters. Ultimately, it is Pakalovic and Violic's fine acting an innovative script that distinguishes the film from other bleak tales of prejudice. --Trinie Dalton
