‘Gangster’ Wins Most Original Documentary in Brussels

Croatia-Week7The Croatian documentary comedy of the year, Gangster te voli (Gangster of Love) by director Nebojša Slijepčević, has been awarded at the 6th Millenium International Documentary Film Festival in Brussels…

More than 50 documentaries from all over the globe tackling some of the problems in the world were screened during the 10-day festival. Gangster te voli won a special award at the festival for the most original film, which it shared with Midsummer Night’s Tango by Vivian Blumenschein.

Gangster te voli follows charismatic matchmaker Nedjeljko Babić, or “Gangster” as he is affectionately known, who has been bringing couples together in Croatia for close to 30 years. Babić, with his immaculately groomed moustache and sunglasses which he never takes off, is tasked in the documentary to find a husband for Maya, a 33-year-old Bulgarian desperate to find her soul mate. Maya’s case highlights the tragic absurdity of traditional men in modern society – although they are lonely and desperate to find a woman, their stubborn conservatism prevents them from adopting an open frame of mind.
