KAOTIČNI ŽIVOT NADE KADIĆ / The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić

KAOTIČNI ŽIVOT NADE KADIĆ / The Chaotic Life of Nada Kadić

The parakeet flits through the apartment, Nada dyes her hair while watching a music video. Her small daughter experiments with the dirty dishes whilst balancing dangerously on a kitchen stool. Then the fridge breaks down. At least the television maintains its hypnotic effect. This all seems just like the chaotic daily life of a young single mother. But Nada’s daughter Hava has been diagnosed with a form of autism, an additional challenge that leads to absurd situations with the authorities. No wonder Nada wants to escape Sarajevo. So the mother and daughter set off in an old Yugo for an adventure in the rainy Bosnian countryside. (Berlinale)
