MODRA

Synopsis

(80 min. 2010)

A portrait of teenage self-discovery against the backdrop of a quirky village in Slovakia.

“Veninger displays a confident control of tone and pacing… a prime example of heartfelt DIY filmmaking that really works… poignantly alert to the nuances of teen life, perfectly capturing that confusing betwixt-and-between time…” Alissa Simon, VARIETY

“[Hallie] Switzer and [Alexander] Gammal are naturals… Veninger’s deceptively relaxed style captures every glance, outburst and hesitation.” Norman Wilner, NOW

“Connection, conflict, local colour and teenage confusion are rendered with intimacy and lightness of touch.”
 Jason Anderson
, Toronto Star
