Movie synopsis: Popular Croatian director, Vinko Bresan, well-known to the Karlovy Vary festival's visitors, made a sunny tragicomedy about a priest, Fabian, who decides to help the miracle of conception. His measures actually temporarily increase the birthrate on his island parish, but the road to hell is always paved with good intentions. Bresan managed to balance chilling dramatic moments with typically Balkan humor. The enclosed space and community refer to the theatre play the film is based on. The dialogue rings with wit and sarcasm. The complex image of “an island fitting into the palm of your hand” with its unique Dalmatian architecture serves as a criticism of a strict Church, as well as its parishioners.
