Children of the Fall

(Djeca jeseni)
Croatia 2013. Dir: Goran Rukavina. 100 min. DCP

Popular Croatian actor Leon Lučev plays a forensic analyst who refuses to accept the reality of an apparent personal tragedy in Goran Rukavina’s moody psychological drama, the director’s feature debut. “Three years ago, Marko’s wife disappeared on a mountaineering expedition. Her body has never been found. Family friend Lidija [Sonja and the Bull star Judita Franković] helps Marko raise his 11-year-old daughter, Marija. Marko is trying a little too hard to keep his life exactly as it was when his wife vanished. Marija and Lidija are ready to move on, but can’t ignore the emotional burden left by the missing woman. Mysterious letters begin arriving each month, ostensibly from Marko’s wife, and an unpredictable turn of events reveals that Marko may know more about the vanished woman’s fate than he’s been letting on” (Croatian Audiovisual Centre).
