Mitja Okorn is known in Poland mainly for romantic comedies. The Slovenian director won the hearts of Polish viewers with films such as Letters to M. if Singles planet. What's more, he also stood behind the camera of the first five episodes of the popular series 39 and a half. How much Okorn reached the hearts of Poles can be proved by the fact that the viewers' reception of the subsequent parts of the aforementioned films was noticeably weaker, where the name of the Slovenian was no longer visible among the filmmakers. This time, however, he decided to try his hand at a slightly different format and design on a much larger scale.
A year for a lifetime is the greatest work by Mitja Okorn so far. Much because it's not a romantic comedy, but a touching, dramatic story with an all-star cast.
On the screen we will see characters such as: Jaden Smith, Cara Delevingne or Robert Fitzgerald Diggz (rapper, commonly known as RZA). Thus, although dialogues are not the best part of the film, it must be admitted that the actors perform well and reliably in their roles.
