When two decades after the war, a diverse group of war veterans gather in a remote mountain hotel to undergo therapy, harmony can hardly be expected. On the contrary, each inconsiderate word, each seemingly angry look can all of a sudden ignite the dangerous explosive mix. Holding fast to their fundamental masculinity and their own prejudices, these former soldiers refuse to expose the inhuman nature of events, regardless of whether it was them or the other side who committed them. This brilliantly directed drama explores how we can only forgive others once we have forgiven ourselves.

Kako se soočiti s travmami vojne in razrešiti globoko zakoreninjeno sovraštvo? Je mogoče ponovno vzpostaviti (za)upanje v zlomljeni družbi? To so vprašanja, ki odmevajo v tem pretresljivem, izjemno napisanem in odigranem filmu, prežetem z mučno atmosfero, toksično moškostjo, nelagodjem in nezaupanjem. Za občutljivost pri raziskovanju kompleksne narave ranjenih posameznikov, natančno poznavanje ter razumevanje fizičnih in psihičnih posledic vojne, predvsem pa za odločno humanistično zavezo medsebojnemu razumevanju, sočutju in sprejemanju Mednarodna žirija filmskih kritikov nagrado FIPRESCI podeljuje filmu Moški ne jočejo, prvencu Alena Drljevića.

Vojni veterani skozi intimne zgodbe delijo dvom v lastne odločitve, ki jih je pogojevala tuja volja. Izbrana igralska zasedba in njihove bravure nas na pretresljiv način prestavijo v občutja preživelih.
