When one of them inherits a run-down empty dry cleaner, three friends decide to take over and start their own pizzeria. Of course whenever starting a new business, obstacles abound—In this case: opening a business in a run-down neighborhood, goons looking for a shakedown, and knowing absolutely nothing about starting a new business. ŠIŠKA DELUXE is a comedy about what it takes to go from being an extra-small cheese to a deep-dish sheet pizza with all the toppings. Mile, Fedr, and Zekir are three slackers looking for their slice of the pie. But when business is slow, you need a great idea. The pizza special of the title is your order of pizza with anything else you want. Need a swan for a photo shoot? Order a pizza and you get your swan. Need a case of beer? Done. Drugs? Done. Dry cleaning? Done. One of the funnier movies of this year’s CIFF, ŠIŠKA DELUXE will pepper you with laughs, and take a pizza your heart. (In Slovenian with subtitles) –T.W.
