MAJA - MARIJANA JANKOVIC (2018)

Written by Adam August and Marijana Jankovic, and directed by the latter, Maja is a touching tribute to immigrant workers (like the director's parents). It is a little long but that can be excused by the quite astonishing acting of its young lead, Selena Marsenic (think how stupid you were when you were her age). Marsenic plays the title character, a six-year-old Serbian girl who has come with her parents to live in Denmark. They drop her off at kindergarten in the morning but it becomes clear that neither she nor her parents speak much Danish. The kindergarten teacher cannot understand why Maja is so keen to clean up after her classmates but there is, of course, a reason. Jankovic, a successful actor in Denmark, also plays Maja's mother (so she is in effect playing her own mother). If you like the short drama film Maja by Marijana Jankovic be sure to rate it and share it.
