“BAL-CAN-CAN”

Year of production: 2005
Duration: 89 min.

LAUGHTER, TEARS, FEAR, PASSION… AND A GRANNY WRAPPED UP IN A CARPET!
The highest grossing film ever in the Republic of Macedonia

"Writer-helmer Darko Mitrevski keeps pushing the envelope... The cynical, hallucinatory, modern Pilgrim's Progress is a trip, with memorably out-there sequences sure to build a cult rep among adventuresome cineastes". (Dennis Harvey, "Variety")

“Extremely funny and corrupted, BALCANCAN stands out as a mouthful of fresh air amongst the stereotypes of modern cinema.” (SFX – U.K.)

“It’s so fast you can’t even blink. One of the most original titles I have seen in recent years.” (Jeffrey Summers, “Blue Films Magazine”)

"Hysterically funny dark comedy, throbbing with vitality... Darko Mitrevski is a director who could soon elbow Emir Kusturica aside from the snug position of the Balkan genius." (Stas Tyrkin, “Manež”)

“The film is shot flawlessly, paradoxically, cleverly, without any strain, and is based on a spectacular screenplay. It is possible that we are witnessing the appearance of yet another Balkan wunderkind…” (Diliara Tasbulatova, “Itogi”)

“It’s an unbelievable movie surprise, and its opening sequence is one of the best I’ve seen in the last few years!” (Tina Maričić, “24 sata”)
