Nightlife / Nočno življenje (2016)

85 min / fiction, Feature Film

One night, a high-profile attorney is found on the pavement along a main road through Ljubljana. He is barely conscious, lying in a pool of blood, and covered in dog bites. Doctors at the medical center fight to keep him alive while his wife, in shock, confronts her deepest fears. During the course of this night she will break every moral standard she has stood up for in her life.

Director's statement:

This is a film about a society where the driving force is fear. It offers no easy resolutions. It reminds us of how fragile our lives are and how all is interconnected. This film tells about how we live in a society where, for the most part, nothing is explained. It also shows that some wounds will never heal. Because people are more vicious than dogs.
