By Matevz Rudolf
    Damjan Kozole's third film in his "transition trilogy," Slovenian Girl, will be shown at the European Film Market in Berlin.

    The film about greed and lost ambitions is the last part of the trilogy Kozole started with Porno Film (2000) and Spare Parts (2003), which was nominated for Golden Bear in Berlin.{mosimage}

    The Slovenian Girl is a 23-year-old student with plans for her life, who finds life is not as easy as she naively expected. Facing financial problems after buying a flat with loan, the manipulative young woman, accomplished liar, and a bit of a thief, turns to prostitution and runs her personal ads under the nickname "The Slovenian Girl." Following a meeting in a hotel room with a politician who suddenly dies of stroke, and with police and creditors desperately looking for her, she wants nobody to discover her past.

    The €1.5 million film was made in production with Emotion Film with coproducers from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Germany.
