Varuh Meje (Guardian of the Frontier)


After wanting so much to watch this movie well, it was a disappointment. That is the bad side of expectations.

Labeled as Drama/Horror/Mystery/ Thriller I could say that only the first, drama, really describes this story. But, it is a bad drama.

Still, is nice to watch rural Slovenia scenery and the portrait of Eastern Europe youth and how they are clashing with their traditional culture. Even if it made no sense to show these themes within the main story, it was interesting to watch the nonexistent separation between Slovenia and Croatia, xenophobia and rural/urban prejudices.


You would not miss much if you do not watch this movie.
