    • Synopsis
    • Miki, local coproducer, takes us over the Hungarian border for a meeting. He tells us that Slovenian people there don't have a word for love. I watch his eyes in the rearview mirror. When he gets out, I tell Frenk, ok, he can be Dad.
      Miki brings Sandi. He's too old. But he has face and hair and eyes and mouth of an angel, and angels don't have age. On a football stadium we are getting to know each other. When I show this to my girlfriend, she shivers and cries. It's gonna be a beautiful film.
      Then the three of us play. We throw little stones in our wells (our souls) and listen to echoes. Later, the crew plays along. That's the game of our cinema.
