"Nesto izmedju" means "something in between" in Serbian. The film is again a masterpiece written by Srdjan Karanovic. Not the first one - I was really impressed by his "Petrijin venac", one of ten best Jugoslavian movies ever made. "Nesto izmedju" is unique. If you don't know anything about Serbian (Balkan) mentality, it's a quite good guide. Story is quite simple - a woman from Western World (USA) accidentally comes to Belgrade of 80's, after just a few hours feels fascinated by the city, people, habits, food etc. Of course she soon falls in love with her friend, a doctor in a hospital, whom met sometime in the past. They try to live (survive?) in the city "in between" east and west. If the lady's dream comes true, you can see...Anyway life is not what it seems to be. If anyone have never been in Eastern Europe during communist regime, understanding of what it's all about may come as a shock...But remember, we lived this way (as seen in the film) more than 40 years. It was reality, not fun. And not a kind of bad joke, just almost half a century cut from our lives. So realistic told by Karanovic, Master for me.
