beautiful in a profound sense
18 October 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

medieval Serbia. a monk and his cure art. a monastery, a noble man and a love story. nothing new. nothing complicated. in a sense, a new Andrei Rublev.dedication for others, angry and revenge, a form of refuge, a country after a dark period. but this movie is special. first

  • for the Velimirovic science to use the text, creating not only an


inspired adaptation but a delicate homage to Serbian past. than - almost each scene, the Orthodox spirit, the costumes and saints faces, the angle and the dialogs. and, in same measure, the performance of Gojko Santic. a touching story, a nice memories for many Yugoslavian public. and a profound pledge for national values , importance of origins, all in middle of an impossible relationship.
