SECRET INGREDIENT

Gjorce Stavreski
Macedonia, Greece, 2017, 104 Min

Out of the frying pan into the fire: Vele has not been paid for months and can’t afford to pay for his father's anticancer drugs. By chance, he finds an unusual solution to relieve his pain: he bakes a cake with a fair amount of cannabis inside. But now the whole neighbourhood is asking for the "miracle healer" – and some suspicious looking men are also interested in him.

"Just shoot everyone. Rescue us from this misery”, growls a neighbor, as Vele seeks a hiding place for the gun with which his father just wanted to commit suicide. The despair sits deep in the hearts of Vele’s fellow human beings. Crime, low wages and the ailing health system leave little room for hope. But, as is often the case, those most in need of a miracle are most willing to see one. Vele’s "magical" cake is a new sign of hope in the fight against diabetes, rheumatism, the morning hangover and homosexuality.

Despite the miserable situation of its protagonists, director Gjorce Stavreski manages to tell a story with a lot of heart, humour and intelligence. The well-known Eastern European gallows humour alternates with real drama and credible tension. A cleverly constructed Black Comedy with an outstandingly authentic and enjoyable father-son relationship. DJ
