I Don’t Care is a tale of wonder and what ifs. Luka has dreams of escaping reality (as shown in his art) but he is led astray and finds that his prince is also the villain. It features great performances all round and the cinematography builds upon the emotion and action. Bookended by poetic monologues and wondrous melodies, it’s almost like a mini modern fairy-tale in which Luka almost finds and loses himself at the same time.
