Yugoslavia, late 1980s. Parents and son are hastily making the final preparations for Christmas Eve dinner. Their beloved uncle will be turning up from Germany any minute now. But, hang on, are things really as they seem?
« The duo’s filmmaking influences are pretty obvious, from the works of Michael Haneke to Yorgos Lanthimos, but The Uncle sometimes ends up in darker, less well-charted territory that we have not yet seen in Croatian cinema. » (Cineuropa)
« A claustrophobic nightmare unfolds gruellingly in Croatian writer-director David Kapac and Andrija Mardešić’s effective but derivative feature debut The Uncle. » (ScreenDaily)
