Reviews

Cineuropa

"In Aleksi […] Tihana Lazović and Goran Marković cement their status as the Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper of Croatian cinema."

Milena Zajović, Večernji list

"Aleksi is a beautifully polished story more in the vein of French escapist art than the "stone, olive, brambles“ Dalmatian stereotype."
