DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE
A sincere, atmospheric and intimate film about the fragility, jealousy, first love and strong emotions that one teenager has to overcome. The best fiction film at the Festival of Slovenian Film.
Klemen (15) adores his older brother Peter (18), who is his idol and best friend. The boys, raised by a single mother, are growing up in a small town in the countryside and spend their days on the tennis court, training to be champions. When Peter falls in love with the beautiful Sonja, everything changes. Klemen feels anger towards his older brother’s voluptuous girlfriend, while at the same time being hopelessly drawn to her feminine sensuality. He is confused and plans to break Peter and Sonja up so he can have his brother back. But his reckless ideas only manage to drive Peter further away, and the boy has to face the consequences of actions that could result in disaster.
