Film notes

Gregor Čušin isn't just an actor in Ljubljana City Theatre. He also performs on various places around Slovenia, mostly in parishes where he's invited. His plays are with free entry, but he asks people at the start of every performance for voluntary contributions. Every one of his performances present a risk whether he'll get enough money for his family or not. He found his purpose in life in his plays, but he feels he is needed also at home with his wife and six children. He says for himself that he is an extremist – and proves that all the time. In his plays he's never self-indulgent and never spares a harsh word for the Church, even though he says he's a part of it.
