When the Deepest Love and Friendship Are Shattered in Another Stupid War
2 April 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1990, in Vulkovar, the Croatian Anna (Mirjana Jokovic) and the Serbian Toma (Boris Isakovic) get married. They had been friends since they were children and they felt in love for each other. Together with Toma`s parents, they build their own house. Anna gets pregnant, when the war begins and Toma is recruited to fight. In the beginning, the persons believe it is a minor conflict. Through the character of Anna, the drama of Croatians, Serbians and Yugoslavians during this stupid war is presented along her nine months of gestation. In the end, after many deaths and destruction, it is showed a panoramic view of the ruined city, shattered like the love of Anna and Toma. Yesterday I watched a great movie called `Harrison`s Flowers', which takes place along this war in the Balkans. I recalled I bought a couple of years ago an unknown film called `Vulkovar'. Today I have decided to see it, and I found a very impressive and unforgettable movie. This upside-down love story has a magnificent performance of Mirjana Jokovic and Boris Isakovic. It is impossible not to be touched with the drama of Anna and the people of this beautiful city nearby the Danube. A very sad anti-war movie, highly recommended for all audiences. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): `Vulkovar'
