Just Between Us (Croatian: Neka ostane među nama) is a 2010 Croatian drama film directed by Rajko Grlić starring Miki Manojlović, Bojan Navojec, Nataša Dorčić, Daria Lorenci and Ksenija Marinković. The film is a co-production involving Croatia’s Mainframe Production, Serbia’s Yodi Movie Craftsman and Slovenia’s Studio Maj and was additionally financed by the Croatian Radiotelevision and Eurimages.
The film, set in Zagreb, centers around two middle-aged middle class brothers, Nikola and Braco (played by Manojlović and Navojec) and the parallel lives they lead amid a web of complex relationships with their wives, mistresses and children. The film has been described by critics as an examination of "loneliness, adultery and urban life", and has been praised for its authentic depiction of contemporary Zagreb.
The film was screened at the 2010 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival where it won Rajko Grlić the Best Director award. It also went on to win seven Golden Arena awards at the 2010 Pula Film Festival, the Croatian national film awards, including Best Film, Best Director (Rajko Grlić), Best Supporting Actress (Ksenija Marinković), Best Cinematography (Slobodan Trninić), Best Production Design (Ivo Hušnjak), Best Film Music (Alfi Kabiljo and Alan Bjelinski) and Best Sound Editing (Srđan Kurpjel).
