Men Don’t Cry / Moški ne jočejo (2017)

99 min / fiction feature, Feature Film

When two decades after the war, a diverse group of war veterans gather in a remote mountain hotel to undergo therapy, harmony can hardly be expected. On the contrary, each inconsiderate word, each seemingly angry look can all of a sudden ignite the dangerous explosive mix. Holding fast to their fundamental masculinity and their own prejudices, these former soldiers refuse to expose the inhuman nature of events, regardless of whether it was them or the other side who committed them. This brilliantly directed drama explores how we can only forgive others once we have forgiven ourselves.
