A young woman at the wheel wipes a small tear off her face. She’s on her way to a hamlet nested up in the mountain. In the background, a romantic pop song. It’s winter, the icy wind blows. The spectacle of snowed-in nature then rises in wide, grandiose shots. The land seems hostile. But the film is about the quest for a country. "Domovine" means country; it also means the country we are born in, the village we grow up in, and the place where we feel at home with total disregard for criteria of belonging. For the stakes here are indeed a young woman’s return to her country, a woman who has never set foot on its soil. Absorbed in speechlessness, she takes her melancholia out for a walk along the seasons between the ruins of abandoned houses, in the springtime pastures, crossing the sovereign cows’ path, a herd of ewe, busy truck farmers and affable restorers.
