Description

Director Pavo Marinkovic attending

Desperately searching for ways to trim their bloated budget, Croatia’s government officials hatch a unique plan: send spies to follow the country’s many war widows and try to uncover clandestine lovers, nullifying the meager pensions that the state owes them. Thus is created The Ministry of Love, and one of its most hapless bureaucrats is poor Krešo, a 40-year-old man desperate for money and respect, a biologist whose true vocation seems utterly worthless in his country, a lonely soul stuck in a dead-end marriage. When the opportunity arrives to become a spy for the Ministry, our hero takes a chance at this potential for redemption, and finds a lot more than he bargained for.

With award winning actor Stjepan Peric as Krešo’s bumbling partner, Šikic, Ministry of Love is a witty romantic comedy that celebrates good people seeking elusive dreams.
