Miroslav Mandić’s Sanremo at Pimedate Ööde Filmifestival
The first frame of the film says everything that needs to be said – an old man sitting alone on a bench beside a road, blanketed in mist. Bruno wants to go home, he needs to feed his dog, but he is not quite sure where home is. He is lost in himself. His memory and sense of reality are fractured. Right beside the bench, there is a big tree – so big that it does not even fit in the frame. Nature is a separate character in Miroslav Mandić’s lifelike film – the transient and the eternal are constantly side by side here.
