About

I am a MA student of Cultural studies in Ljubljana, Slovenia. After finishing my bachelor’s degree, I temporarily moved to Prague where I spend a semester at Anglo-American University, trying to gain more knowledge about film – focusing especially on the psychoanalytical aspect of it, as well as trying to educate myself about Central European cinema in general.

In my spare time I like to work at film festivals that take place in Slovenia – mainly at Festival of Slovenian Film and International Animated Film Festival (or in short, Animateka) and I hope I will get even more of such opportunities in the future.

This blog serves me as a platform where I can share my opinions about films (and sometimes, although rarely, about TV-series), while also practising English (which is not, as you might have already guessed, my native language).

I really would not mind getting any kind of feedback from all of you readers out there (good or bad – constructive criticism is more than welcome; how else am I going to improve?!). You can find my contact below or simply use one of the many social media links on my site – I will be happy to hear your thoughts on my reviews or on my blog in general.

Some of my favourite films include Tarkovsky’s Zerkalo, Bergman’s Persona, Ozu’s Tokyo Story, Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc, Bresson’s Au Hasart Balthazar, Teshigahara’s Woman in the Dunes, Mizoguchi’s Ugetsu, Antonioni’s L’avventura and Bela Tarr’s Werckmeister Harmonies… Here’s the whole list of my all-time favourite movies.

  1. Didn’t know you were on Letterboxd until I scrolled down… Was gonna recommend it the moment I read “keeping track of films watched” 😀 …And you got a really good blog 😉

  2. You have an excellent taste in films, in my opinion! Though I have no idea how you find time to see so many, let alone write about them too (in a second language, and very well at that)…

  3. Hi Veronika,

    would it be possible for you to review my indie feature ‘Little Pieces’? I appreciate you’re likely very busy and it may not be possible. We’re trying to raise the film’s profile by having it review on indie blogs and websites that cater to a more indie-cinema market.

    We’ve been reviewed by three other sites so far who have all rated the film highly. Positive feedback has included that the film is ‘an ambitious first feature from a director who blatantly understands how to intelligently tell a cinematic story’ (Hannah McHaffie – Reel Insights) that ‘Captures the good and bad in all of us.’ (James Turner – Indyred.com) and ‘deserves your dedicated attention especially for its narrative and original approach to story telling. (Bianca Garner – Film Gods).

    We can provide you with a press pack and an online screener of the film.

    Hope to hear from you soon,

    Adam Nelson
    Director – Little Pieces.
