    FNE at Slovenian Film Festival 2012: Good to Go Good to Go director Matevž Luzar

    POTOROZ: Good to Go a debut feature film from young Slovenian director Matevž Luzar screens in competition at the 15th Festival of Slovenian Film (www.fsf.si), running through 30 September 2012.

    The film is a Slovenia, Croatian and Czech coproduction. Shooting in Slovenia began on 3 November 2011 and was completed in 28 days on 5 December, with a few shooting days carried out in Croatia.


    The film was produced by PAKT Media c/o Propeler (www.paktmedia.com). It received funding from the Slovenian Film Center (www.film-center.si) and the Croatian Audiovisual Center (www.havc.hr).


    Good to Go is the story of Ivan, a retired music teacher in his late 70’s who has grown weary of life. His estranged son never lived up to his expectations, he is jealous of his brother’s happy life, and he cannot keep up with the changes around him. He buys himself a plot in a graveyard with a view of the Alps and checks into a retirement home so he can wait for death in peace. However, the exact opposite happens: for the first time in his life Ivan starts to actually live.
