Ministry of Love
A comedy all about romance and red tape.
Kreso, a hapless biologist-turned-bureaucrat, lands the least desirable government job in Croatia: spying on war widows in order to cut off their pensions should they find new partners.
But what his bosses, including his father-in-law, don’t know is that he just may be romance’s unlikeliest champion.
Ministry Of Love is a quirky, blisteringly funny road trip through the twists and turns of finding one’s true passion in the unlikeliest of places.
“Master of Comedy.” (Aravind K. S, Deccan Chronicle)

“Flavored with surreal snippets, brilliant acting and, above all, a smooth, clean and clear screenplay creating a movie that will be enjoyed all over the world.” (Danijel Rafaelic, Globus Weekly)
“Marinković mines a rich seam of bureaucratic absurdity for big, sexy laughs in this beautifully acted comic fantasy.” (David Franklin, Filmmaker)
