THE RIGHT ONE
The opening film of the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, about a possessive mother, a loving son, the fiancée’s first visit, a silent witness. Four players around a pie. Starring Mirjana Karanovic.
“The Right One” focuses on the clash between the conservative and the liberal. A classic mother from the Balkans, who always knows what is best for others, meets her son’s new love. The widow (Mirjana Karanovic) invited her son, a policemen (Muhamed Hadzovic) and his new girlfriend (Doroteja Nadrah) over for coffee and cake. As the story goes, many things are revealed. A short comedy by writing-directing duo Urska Djukic (Slovenia) and Gabriel Tzafka (Greece), marvellously filmed in a single shot.
