A WONDERFUL NIGHT IN SPLIT
Croatia, 2004, 100 min, black & white

On the dark and empty streets of the Split ghetto, during the last two hours of New Years Eve, we observe three separate stories taken out of the mad New Years celebration. Three different romantic couples find themselves in Peristyle the small-time pirate Nike dealer with the widow Marija and her baby, a young addict in withdrawal and the disillusioned sailor Franky, and finally, the love-struck, naive adolescents Luka and Anjela all trying to run away from the extremes to which theyve been pushed and to change their lives.
