   „A Letter to My Dad“ is a film that is best described as a drama-documentary hybrid. It is based on real events but is structured like a live-action feature film. The central theme is the relationship between a particular father and son, or more precisely, their communication issues. The characters are Mate (70) and his son Milivoj (44). The film has three distinct sections: an intimate confession from the son, a portrait of the father and a confrontation between the father and son. („A Letter to My Dad“ won four Golden Arenas, including the one for best film)
   „Pismo ćaći“ hibridna je forma dokumentarnog i igranog filma. Temelji se na stvarnim događajima, ali je strukturiran kao dugometražni igrani film. Radnja se bavi odnosom oca i sina, odnosno preciznije, njihovim problemima u komunikaciji. Protagonisti filma su Mate (70) i njegov sin Milivoj (44), a sastoji se od tri dijela: intimne ispovijedi sina, očevog portreta i konfrontacije između njih dvojice.
