simply great movie
22 September 2008 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Reading comment of the man who's nickname is ''ferrari'' made me write this review. First of all as a Serb i can just totally disagree with that the Serbian people is growing hatred to other nations through the centuries.Yes it's true,we(Serbia)were under the reign of Ottoman Empire for almost five centuries and it is normal that our ancestors have fought against them but not from hatred,they were only protecting their families,their homes,and their fatherland.But enough with history. Movie has no any similarity with Gibson's Braveheart.Different time ,different places,different battles.However,movie follows a real historical battle on Kosovo field in June 1389.Most of the characters in film are real true Serbian monarchs and warriors,dukes,knights and so on... Real great epic/history movie of great heroic days but also a great story of betrayal and strength of one small people(Serbian)under very powerful oppressor. Fantastic film for anyone who likes historical movies and also for ones that don't.Because,there's a lot of individual portraits of people in hard times.THIS NEXT LINE IS FOR IMDb'S ADMINISTRATORS ONLY(DELETE THIS BEFORE YOU PUBLISH MY REVIEW,I HAVE TO ASK YOU:DO YOU WANT ME TO WRITE REVIEWS(1 OR 2 EACH DAY,)OF EX-YUGOSLAVIAN MOVIES MOVIES???CAUSE I AM FROM SERBIA,AS YOU ALREADY KNOW,AND I HAVE WATCHED SURELY OVER 450 EX-YU FILMS,SO TELL ME DOES IT MAKES ANY GOOD FOR YOU?CAUSE I WANT IN THIS WAY TO MAKE ''OUR'' FILMS LITTLE CLOSER TO WIDER AUDIENCE.ANSWER ME IN E-MAIL WHEN YOU SEND ME NOTIFICATION DID YOU PUT THIS MY REVIEW ON YOUR SITE.DELETE THIS TEXT IN CAPS LOCK,HEHEHE
