Synopsis

Alma is in between everything: raised in the Netherlands by Bosnian parents, no longer a girl, but not really a woman yet. She hardly knows her father, but when he is admitted to a Bosnian hospital she decides to visit him one last time.

Our take

As in all great journeys, the characters of Ena Sendijarević’s award-winning debut won’t be the same after this adventure. Vibrantly nodding to Jarmusch’s beloved Stranger Than Paradise, this stylized, offbeat road movie glows with pastel-colored melancholy, Balkan humor and teen self-discovery.

Critics reviews

The genre—or rather mode of filmmaking—of the road movie works so well here, because all the ideas, observations, and critiques in Take Me Somewhere Nice are also perpetually in transit. Their underlying meanings and intentions aren’t fixed, always allowing for multiple interpretations.
