Vera ROBIC – SKARICA (Croatian Film Association (HFS))
In February 2009 there were 411 procedures of foreclosure on real estate being conducted in Croatia. It was the inglorious end of a chain of lending and debts that resulted in a cornerstone of people’s basic existence being taken away – the space in which they live. The inability to return loans to banks and repay debts to various loan sharks has become a major facet of Croatian daily life. This film deals not so much with the reasons that lead to foreclosure – instead it documents the emotional states, the interpersonal relations, the conversations ranging from the seemingly trivial to those that deal heatedly with the film’s timely subject.
