YOU CARRY ME (TI MENE NOSIŠ)
Croatian-Montenegrin writer-director Ivona Juka earned raves for her ambitious fiction-feature debut, a co-production between four Balkan countries that was Montenegro’s official submission to the 88th Oscars. The female-driven drama, set in Zagreb, juggles multiple characters and overlapping plotlines, all linked in some way to the production of a TV soap opera called Prisoners of Happiness. Dora is a soccer-loving schoolgirl with a reprobate dad; her fed-up mom works on the show. Ives is a director struggling to care for her aging father, who has Alzheimer’s. Nastasa is a producer facing difficult personal and professional challenges.
“An emoti...onally absorbing ensemble drama full of dramatic swerves and chronological loops. Novelistic in scope and texture, punctuated with poetic, dreamlike imagery… YOU CARRY ME is a classy and compelling exercise” (Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter).
