Spare Parts

Synopsis: Embittered widower, Ludvik, spends his nights transporting illegal refugees in his van from Croatia, across Slovenia, and into Italy. The young and inexperienced Rudi acts as his helpmate. Together they become a well-trained duo who almost every night convey "spare parts" to Italy. Of course the story of their illegitimate exports into Europe ends tragically, for everyone. The whole idea of this account is that everyone - including ourselves - is looking for happiness: the "spare parts" because of the misery they are plunged into without, and our characters because they can't find it inside.

Hello, Krsko!

Ladies and gentlemen,

dear speedway fans,

welcome to our great

international race

for the Golden Sign

of Krsko.

We've had more

than 170 races in our town.

Let's imagine the rich history

of the speedway races

in this stadium.

Especially from the time

when the winners on this track were

Franc Babic,

Kreso Omerzel, Ludvik Zajc.

On the tracks

in the stadium today,

we once again have renowned

international speedway racers

from Australia,

Argentina, England,

Denmark, Norway,


Finland, Sweden,


Italy, USA and Slovenia.

Speedway is quite a festivity

here in Krsko.

That's how it's going

to be today too.

In this 2nd lap

of the 20th race

we see a fantastic pass

by the American rider

Greg Hancock,

one of the best riders

in the world.

It's very tight here.

Is the pass going

to work out for him?

And... he falls.

The American rider

Sam Ermolenko falls down.

Dear spectators,

the winner of the 20th race

is greeting you.

And please welcome him

with a big applause!

The American rider

Sam Ermolenko is

still on the ground.

Dear spectators,

dear speedway fans,

this is the final race

of today's best four riders

for the winner

of the Golden Sign.

Among them there is also

Gerhard More Geri

from Krsko, Slovenia.

Is Geri going to make it?

The competition is great.

It's just a few moments

to the start. And... go!


Hi, I'm Rudi.

- Got a driver's license?

- Yeah.

...a home race,

an excellent public,

a good machine...

is this the makings

of a real sensation?

Geri is still leading.

I can't believe it!

He's pressing

his advantage.

And... he wins!

There's great enthusiasm

in the stadium

and incredible joy

amongst the winning team

that backed up

the excellent performance

of its rider

Gerhard More Geri...

- Whoo! Whoo!

...who's being lifted by his team.

Are you scared?

I don't know.

A little.

A man has to do

what he's most afraid of.

That's how

he gets stronger.

That's why Ludvik Zajc

began racing,

'cause they used to

pick on him at school

and so I became

a national champion.

The first one in the

independent Slovenia 199991.

I know. I remember.

I used to root for you.

Everybody in Krsko

rooted for me.

Everybody in Krsko.

Let's see how you're

going to manage.

- How have you been?

- Cool.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Those two are Macedonians.

- He's collecting the money.

- 1000 euros. Counting, kid?

- Yeah, yeah.

Count if there's 2000.

So, guys, where the f*ck

is the money?

We don't have any more.

That's all we've got.

What the f*ck do you mean,

it's all you've got?!

No money.

The Croats crossed us.

- What about the Croats?

- They took double.

- So? What do I do now?

- Come on, let us go.


All right, all right.

I don't like Croats either.

Croats are thieves.

Come on. Get in.


Come on, count it.




Want a beer?

The two Macedonians

are without cash.


I want to go out a little bit.

Where to?

To Ljubljana.

It's been a long time.

I want to go to McDonald's.

- To McDonald's?

- Yeah.

Ludvik Zajc wouldn't patronize

the Americans if they paid me.

Americans get on my nerves.

You're not going anywhere.

We're not on vacation.

Shit, it stinks in here.

We're hungry.

We can organize

pizzas for you.

You've got to be kidding!

What? You go and

complain to the police,

and they'll take you back

from where you came,

you Albanian dick.

So? So, how many?

What the f*ck is with you?

- One.

- One.


Come on outside.

Let's talk, yeah?
