“Confirmation“ is a bittersweet coming-of-age comedy. Set in the modern Slovenian countryside, it follows the adventures and friendship of three teenage boys right before confirmation. When the village community is surprised by a drug find, their friendship is put to the test. It is a visually rich film with a fast-paced plot, with many distinct and colourful characters, exciting subplots and some surprising twists. It playfully explores irony, the grotesque, satire and, at times, ventures into the realm of surrealism.
