A confirmed bachelor earns his living by reciting texts at all the funerals held in his village. He lives with his sister, a brother-in-law who is hardly ever there, a grandfather who is determined to commit suicide and two nephews: a boy who is a nuisance and a deaf and dumb girl. A film with a strong local flavour in the best traditions of Balkan cinema that starts with situations full of gags and then soon turns into a terrible drama. The second full-length film by a Slovene director, whose debut film won awards at numerous festivals.
BIOGRAPHY
Born in 1966. In 1999, he wrote a script with Janez Burger for the film in which he also starred, Idle Running, a part for which he won awards in Kiev, Cottbus and Moscow. Bread and Milk (2001), his directorial debut, was screened at over 45 festivals all over the world and received numerous international awards. Gravehopping is his second film.
