Take Me Somewhere Nice

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. This starts a journey with an unknown destination as Alma discovers herself and her country of origin.§Ena Sendijarević often refers to Jim Jarmusch as an example. Unusual camera angles and a minimalist plot introduce us to the mindset of a teen to whom everything is new and nothing is strange. (International Film Festival Rotterdam)
