dramatic tragedy
12 April 1999 | by (Belgrade, Yugoslavia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I`v ever seen. It is about two families getting apart in Belgrade 1995, during the war in Bosnia. Situation in Belgrade is far from normal. Reactions of people are very different, media becomes more important than sons, daughters... After the war is over, nobody would be the same. This is the last movie of this respectable director, since he died in helicopter accident.
