Bruno lives in a nursing home, and constantly craves for Duša, only to forget her after each of their encounters. When he is alone, his past resurfaces violently, causing him to want to run away and return to his own home, his wife and his dog – who, sadly, are no longer there. Their unique relationship evokes Gigliola Cinquetti’s “Non ho l’età” (Sanremo 1964), the one common memory they share both from when they were young.
Slovenia's 2022 official Oscar submission for Best International Feature Film, SANREMO is a moving “paean to the intermittent bliss and comfort of romance, no matter how ephemeral” that tells a “surprisingly tender story about how we hold on to others even when we can’t hold on to our notion of ourselves” (Variety).
