Movie Info

Their wedding in only two weeks, Anita and Bekim are adding the final touches to their big day. Despite expecting news of Anita's parents, declared missing since the 1999 Kosovar War, and with Bekim's controlling family in turn, the couple seem to manage somehow with the preparations. But when Bekim's secret gay ex-lover, Nol, returns from abroad unexpectedly, the situation becomes complicated, especially when Bekim realizes that Nol is still in love with him. Inevitably, the wedding banquet becomes loaded with tension when the unusual love triangle starts to unravel.

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Nothing having to do with either Anita or the marriage itself is as compelling as the love affair between these two men.

This is a solid portrait of time's effect on what we miss, and how we miss.

December 4, 2018 | Full Review…

A relevant, relatable and rewarding snapshot of how a society grows crookedly around its unresolved secrets, in the same way that a marriage can.

January 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Director-cowriter Blerta Zegiri creates a strongly naturalistic picture of the people and the situation they're caught up in.

December 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There are brilliant performances from all three leads. They encompass all the complexities, psychological torments and pressures on the emerging middle-classes in Pristina.
