A young man works in a food truck, across from a brothel with a girl who needs his help.
Sam works at the Spoetnik food stand, selling its namesake specialty lunch kabab.
The stand is situated across the street from a brothel, and when one of the girls who works there visits Sam’s stand — slung over the shoulder of her “minder” — Sam falls in love with the alluringly pretty girl and decides to rescue her.
Spoetnik is a classic tale of love at first sight, but with its wry sense of humor, stylized images and eccentric sense of timing, it’s a highly memorable cinematic experience.
Each detail in the film — from the costumes and sharp framing to the locations and colors — is highly precise and even uncannily elegant.
The result is a film with plenty of verve, style and ruffian charm, and makes for a highly enjoyable and unique take on the romantic comedy.
