Slovenia's crusade was for nought. The forces of evil have triumphed.

Now I don't realize why sacmersault rated Camp de Thiaroye higher than Respiro at criticker, while placing it lower over here. Maybe he can explain us, otherwise I might suspect sabotaging Slovenia from progressing to the R2 & thus eliminating Italy.

It's not only that choosing underdog countries leaves you few options, but it happens to be an impossible quest when it smells of evicting the big-hitter out too soon.

Don't wanna sound like a crybaby, but if the manager chose to gamble with not very top of its output, then accept these scenarios the way they are.

I rate movies the moment I watch them. I do that on purpose, because sometimes after thinking about them and analyzing them, I change my mind about them. When I saw Respiro at first I didn't think much of it, but analyzing it made me like it a lot more. Camp de Thiaroye was good but in comparison to Respiro it wasn't as strong to me. On the other side, Samorastniki was probably the worst film I've seen on the world cup matches I've seen in all seasons. I truly disliked it both in content and how it was made. I didn't give it a lesser score because I rarely rate anything below 5 on IMDb or 50 on Criticker

I thought it was very good, and I'm glad to have seen it, thanks to you! It was simply up against one of my big favorites...

I liked the color palette of the films here. Desert Yellow, Medieval Black, Sea Blue, Village Green. Sad to see Slovenia goes out. This kind of story requires lot of character development and epic runtime to get truly immersed in the story. Few seconds and boom, there were 5 kids. In the next scene the everyone grew up!!! But its understandable that the point was social commentary with left views rather than the actual love story.
