Ubij me nežno / Kill Me Tenderly

Simona Semenič: Kill me tenderly

Simona Semenič, the author of the text Kill me tenderly, based on screenplay by Franček Rudolf  for the film by Boštjan Hladnik with the same title, added to the characters and their dialouge the spirit of the most tempting form – a soap opera. The characters in the story interact with each other according to the rules of soap operas, and their dialogues sound similar to those found in Mexican telenovelas. Nowadays, most media use this successful genre, and the TV plays with its features in their everyday news programmes as well as reality shows.
