by Darko Sinko
Boris Robič is – as it is customary to say – an ordinary man. One day after supper, however, somebody fires a shot at him through the window while he is reading in his room. The police arrive and an investigation begins. It turns out that Boris does not have enemies or any disputes with anyone. There are no suspects – Boris appears to be a person completely unlikely to be assassinated. It seems that the event must have been a coincidence of some sort, so the police stop investigating after a while. Boris cannot come to terms with this so he starts investigating on his own. While he looks for potential perpetrators, Boris discovers that he is hated by more people than he could ever have imagined, and that his own perceptions of his own life are merely illusions. The film Inventory is a drama with elements of a thriller and black comedy, set in contemporary middle-class surroundings in Slovenia.
