Very good
19 April 2007 | by (e.g. London, England) – See all my reviews

Now I'm not saying this is a masterpiece, but it is nonetheless a very interesting movie. It is definitely worth seeing, if you get a chance.

The storyline follows the life of a child whose posh family disintegrated following the arrival of communists in Belgrade, Serbia.

The loss of his family, societal status and dignity and the perceived lack of morals in the communist society drives him further and further away from the mainstream and into loneliness, depression and murderous obsession.

The movie maybe tries a little too hard to represent the post-war communist society as a parade of ignorant, unsophisticated and violent peasants, freshly arrived from the mountains and villages but already ruling every aspect of the new society.

The film is really about violence, and about painful changes in society that war and violent revolutions bring.
