Goran is a drama – or rather a thriller – taking place in a beautiful mountain village of snow-covered Gorski Kotor. Goran lives a simple life, surrounded by his friends and family, but his carefree existence is put to an end when his beautiful blind wife announces she is pregnant at a family dinner. Although they have every reason to celebrate, Goran’s life turns upside down. His life is suddenly ruined by a dramatic and unexpected set of events leading to numerous twists in the tale, opening up conflicts between characters, views and beliefs. The white winter idyll soon turns into a nightmare, destroying the lives of seven people.
This new film by the young Croatian director Nevio Marasović, who was our guest in 2014 (with his debut Vis-à-Vis), might appeal to lovers of intimate dramas as well as the Coens’ Fargo or fans of Quentin Tarantino.

Goran souhaite simplement mener sa vie de chauffeur de taxi, mais ses proches ont d’autres projets et d’autres rêves, qui menacent son existence insouciante. Avec un hiver blanc et froid comme toile de fond, les habitants des montagnes révèlent leurs caractères fougueux et se heurtent les uns aux autres. Le blanc se teinte de rouge.
