Synopsis:
Milena is 50-year-old wife and mother ensconced comfortably behind a gate in an upscale suburb of Belgrade. She quietly tends to her looks, dutifully cooks and entertains, and meets her friends for choir practice. She makes love with her husband and they socialize jauntily with a group of old friends. But unsettling realities are beginning to seep into Milena’s consciousness and disrupt her ordered world. One day while cleaning, she happens upon a videotape that incriminates her husband in horrific war crimes. Milena begins an awakening from the suburban paradise she has been living in.

Jury’s decision:

“In DOBRA ZENA / A GOOD WIFE the cinematographic approach and the story itself are remarkably convincing and relevant for the audience in countries which share similar (historical) experiences. We all are affected by the social and psychological issues caused by wars. Ghost of the past never vanish and every decision has its consequences.”

Jury:

Gertraud Eiter, Otto-Preminger-Institut (Leokino/Cinematograph), Innsbruck, Austria
Rūta Švedkauskaitė, Kino pasaka, Vilnius, Lithuania
