Simovic 10/10, Sotra 3/10, Budget 1/10
18 July 2009 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Let's start with Simovic's play. It's ingenious. You can see that he's inspired by past events and that his feelings are honest. Every Serb should find something to learn out of it... I don't expect for the foreigners to find it as interesting, but Serbs should find every aspect of the script ingenious, no exceptions. There are some that claim that this movie is not based on historical facts... It isn't, it's based on a play, and play is based on epic literature. Learn to live with it. This script delivers a strong message to every Serb world wide... Directing? Sucked. Camera is bad. Budget is as low as water supply in Sudan. This movie deserves a higher budget and a better director. I respect Sotra for what he is, but he ain't a kind of director for this movie, if you know what I mean. If you're a Serb, or if you're interested in Serbian history, this movie, along with Drina March is just the one for you. Try to ignore the terrible camera work.
