Lana Barić stars (in a role she scripted) in this character study that doubles as social critique. Tereza, the 37-year-old of the title, has just miscarried but doesn’t share this fact with those around her, internalizing the experience as the latest in a series of failures. When her gynecologist blithely suggests she may be genetically incompatible with her husband, a seasonal fisher, Tereza contemplates infidelity. “Tereza37 is the latest in a line of recent Croatian films that examine the patriarchy in the coastal region of Dalmatia. This trend started a few years ago with Hana Jušić’s Quit Staring at My Plate [EUFF 2018] … One of the key ideas explored by this wave is the notion that tradition, patriarchy included, is not necessarily imposed by the male members of the family, since they tend to be absent or disinterested, but by the elder women who become its fiercest keepers” (Marko Stojiljković, Cineuropa).
