Very memorable
28 January 2014 | by (Novi Sad, Serbia) – See all my reviews

This is a story of Tomislav K., an early member of communist resistance in Yugoslavia during WW2. His name is probably a reference to Josef K., because he is also frequently tossed around by life circumstances without power to prevent it.

Tomislav is a flesh-and-blood character, not without fear, and certainly not able to resist his passionate nature at all times. He is neither "the good guy" nor "the bad guy", so you certainly cannot categorize this movie into the majority of propaganda films about the war, being made in Yugoslavia at the time. You will see both the Ustaša's war crimes and the communist's post-war chaos during the Tito-Stalin feud, in the course of which anybody could send to jail anybody else by simply accusing him of being a Stalinist.

(Spoilers are about to appear) Whoever saw a Zafranović movie before, knows that they should expect many scenes aimed to shock and to be remembered. Some of them are full of horror (the truck full of dismembered bodies), and some of them very sensual (Tomislav making love to his sister-in-law, played by gorgeous Ljiljana Blagojević, while she is in fever).

To conclude, I recommend this movie, especially to anyone who knows the basic facts about the history of Balkans.
