Dove sei, amor mio by Veljko Popović
A lonely old lady in a provincial town struggles to put her own memories in place. But she has to face both her nightmares and the lack of understanding from the small community she lives.
Dove sei, amor mio presents two worlds. The imaginary world the old lady dreams of and reenacts (to the sound of the Italian song Dove sei, amor mio) contrasts magnificently with the muted colors and failed sympathy of her urban environment.
Her final transcendence is a well-articulated variation of Michael Dudok de Wit's equally touching film Father and Daughter.
