Špela is almost thirty. She graduated in art history, which means that she has never had a regular job: she only makes money with casual work. Unlike her two best friends who moved abroad years ago and do not intend to return, Špela stubbornly insists on staying in Ljubljana, even though the majority of her social life takes place over Skype. When she ends up on her disappointed parents' couch without any money, work, or company, she realizes that it will be harder than expected to grow up.

Vodomec - Special Mention
jury prize
2018

Avtorica podeli glas lastni generaciji ter njene težave osvetli s pretanjenim spojem dramatičnosti in humorja.

Vesna Award
best supporting role
2018

Živa Selan je igralka, ki žari. S svojo naravnostjo, drznostjo in odzivnostjo oblikuje vlogo, ki jo občutimo kot refleksijo neulovljivega in neoprijemljivega ustroja sveta. Dušljivost vsakdana, kot ga v popolni nemoči doživlja generacija, ki ne more priti do zaposlitve, se kaže v igralkini navidezni razigranosti in lahkotnosti. Njen izraz ni nikoli isti ali brezizrazen, nasprotno, s svojo sugestivno močjo in distanco do sveta ves čas sporoča: »Nisem dobro.«

Slovenian Film Critics' Special Mention
critic's choice
2018

Za dosledno kritično refleksijo časa in današnje mlade generacije, ki v odnosu do protagonistov uspe biti hkrati humorna, trpka in ljubeča, ter za režijsko dovršen portret Ljubljane, ki v filmu nastopa kot svojstven karakter.

Vesna Award
best screenplay
2018

Scenarij filma Ne bom več luzerka izstopa s svojo dodelanostjo, premišljenostjo in očitnim poznavanjem tematike. Iz navidez pasivnega lika Špele ustvari močno in privlačno protagonistko, narativni presežek pa ustvarja v večplastnosti, vizualni pripovedi in bogatem podtekstu.

Vesna Award
best feature film
2018

Film Ne bom več luzerka je žirija prepoznala kot najbolj celovit filmski izdelek tega festivala. Relevantnost teme, dodelan scenarij in precizna režija Urše Menart, izvrstna igralska zasedba z Evo Jesenovec na čelu ter vsi preostali avtorski prispevki tvorijo prepričljivo celoto. Generacijska problematika je aktualna in pereča, a jo film obravnava z inteligentno noto humorja, absurda in topline.
