Tigers in the City
Artichoke proudly presents Juraj Krasnohorsky’s debut feature film and Artichoke’s debut feature film production. Tigers in the City is a summer comedy about the difficulties of finding a soul mate in a crazy world.
It is a story about a young man who decides to give up his old life style and friends to seduce the woman of his dreams, but instead ends up in a cobweb of chance and destiny.
Three friends about to turn 30 call themselves animal names: BADGER, HYENA and PIGEON. They like to spend time together in their favorite bar in the Bratislava city Zoo, but they all feel that something is missing – they starve for a soul mate for life. After years of fantasizing about a woman’s voice on the radio, Badger finally decides to meet her. Badger’s life takes an unexpected twist, when his friends discover, that a man is trying to kill him. The man is a Russian ex-hit-man hired to kill Badger for his extensive zeal as a state prosecutor, working against local mafia. At the same time, the killer happens to be the husband of the radio speaker, with whom Badger just started a romance. The circle is closed. Now it’s not only a question of falling in love anymore. It’s about staying alive.
