The Cynthia Froid Group hosts a special free screening for MCC members and guests of “Ministry of Love,” with the film’s director attending. Desperately searching for ways to trim their bloated budget, Croatia’s government officials hatch a unique plan: send spies to follow the country’s many war widows and try to uncover clandestine lovers, nullifying the meager pensions that the state owes them. Thus is created The Ministry of Love, and one of its most hapless bureaucrats is poor Krešo, a 40-year-old man desperate for money and respect, a biologist whose true vocation seems utterly worthless in his country, a lonely soul stuck in a dead-end marriage. When the opportunity arrives to become a spy for the Ministry, our hero takes a chance at this potential for redemption, and finds a lot more than he bargained for. With award-winning actor Stjepan Peric as Krešo’s bumbling partner, Šikic, “The Ministry of Love” is a witty romantic comedy that celebrates good people seeking elusive dreams. A reception will follow the film in the River Room at the Aster Cafe. RSVP to Cynthia Froid with attendee names and date of screening: firstname.lastname@example.org.
