Mischievously self-assured Mára and somewhat eccentric Heduš set out into the frozen wastes in search of adventure – by car, naturally. After all, Mára's turning fifteen soon. A road movie about the flies that occasionally buzz around even in winter, and a story – before it ends at the police station – that tells of the elusive bond of boyhood friendship and the irrepressible desire to experience something, even if you don't exactly know what.
Winter Flies is a charming road movie that travels, above all, through the exciting, timeless landscape of growing up. The film makes the viewer find the child within, full of innocent pleasures, with an ever-insatiable desire for adventure, exploration, and ceaseless travels through the sweet sorrows of the world. Olmo Omerzu guides the story with an ease of a fairy tale, enhancing it with refined humour yet always treating the subject responsibly.
"Zimske muhe, osebni mladinski film ceste dovršeno prepleta doživljajske zaplete globoko zapomnljivih naturščikov. Samo dogajanje, filmski prostor in filmski čas se razgrnejo s tisto lahkotnostjo, ki priča o ljubezni do filmske ustvarjalnosti. Ob vsej navihanosti Zimske muhe razprejo tudi teme, ki se odvijajo tako onkraj mladosti kakor v zunanjosti polja." -programski odbor revije KINO!
