Silence
14 September 2006 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

"Breza" is a poetic slow and mostly silent movie about life of the people living in the village in Croatia. The main theme is love or lack of love between Janica, girl of unusual beauty, and Marko, man with mustaches who has already broken many of women's hearts. And Janica's heart is yet to be broken. How could she as the only Breza in the wood survive this lack of love and the cruel inhabitants of the village. the main point is how something so special and so unique can be destroyed by society and misunderstanding. Film is great pictured, photography is perfect, every shot is a small master-piece. The film is pictured in the style of naive painters and it has that kind of atmosphere.
