NIGHT BOATS [Nocni brodovi]

Stars Ana Karić and Radko Polič give affecting performances as an old couple discovering new love in this charming crowd-pleaser by writer/director Igor Mirković. Senior citizen Helena (Karić) has settled into her twilight years at a sleepy nursing home in Zagreb. But sparks fly after a chance encounter in the elevator with new arrival Jakov (Polič), and suddenly these two oldsters are yearning for freedom. Rejuvenated, the two make a break for it and hit the road in Jakov's beat-up Mercedes, which, with its broken reverse gear, forces the couple to keep moving forward and not look back, all the way to the Dalmatian coast. But for how long can the two outrun their past, and live like runaway teenagers?
