New review for Things Unsaid from Filmoskopija

Pavla Banjac from Filmoskopija wrote:
“THINGS UNSAID really suffers from extensive exposition, but the carefully composed shots and certain directorial means (eg. the development of Ana and Fillip’s relationship through their marital bed, or the minimalistic and purposeful use of music) demonstrate that this is a technically very skilled film that’s worthy of attention.”

Review for Things Unsaid in CINEUROPA by David Katz

“… it’s evident from the first moments of her feature debut that Macedonian director Eleonora Veninova has a gift for a passive-aggressive dramatic set-up.

But having said this, in Things Unsaid – which premiered in the Cairo International Film Festival’s International Competition – dramatic developments simmer, rather than combust, Veninova’s screenplay deftly exploring the potential resonance of the title, without resorting to bald ironies. But whilst Maja (Sara Klimoska), the troubled interloping teenager, does initially seem set up as a troubling catalyst who’ll upset their domestic harmony, instead, she gently triggers the couple to crumble of their own accord. Creepily evoking a daughter or niece, rather than a family friend (especially when she coquettishly comes on to both of them), Maja seems wiser and more liberated for the sole fact of her inability to leave things very much unsaid…”

FIPRESCI critic István Szathmáry writes about ‘Fighting for Death.’  🙂

“The film is about the moving and at the same time funny fight to prevent the other from dying first, told with ample humour and absurdity. The basic idea of the story is already brilliant: a struggle to win a race for death and to preserve the health of the opponent at all cost.”
