Second Best Serbian War Movie
7 January 2010 | by (Bgd,Serbia) – See all my reviews

Gruesome, anti-war movie in which Velimir Bata Zivojinovic do his life performance. Incredible vignettes directs in stile of real spaghetti western with poetics of Picaso's "Guernica". This is the real version of Serbian "Apocalypse Now", simple, effective, acted in rural stile to perfection. It's hard to understand for foreign viewers in his background politics flavor. I dare to all possible viewers to do some free interpretations of this film on other historical ages of Serbian people: 1804, 1878, 1914, 1941, 1991, 1999 ..... Do some regarding on this scene: Dragan Nikolic attempt suicide on river, Serbian East Bosnia village civil victim, "execution" of German officer, Chetniks-partisan family house divided - flamed over partisan commander, deaf Paja Vujisic, scene in the well, scene in which all villagers rise for repentance.... Also, a list of best Serbian war movies by ME: 1. Tri (Three) 1965 2. Tren (Moment) 1978 3. Mars Na Drinu (March on the river Drina) 1964 4. Lepa Sela, Lepo gore (Pritty village, pretty flame) 1996 / Underground (Bila jednom jedna zemlja) 1995 5. Gluvi barut (Silent powder) 1990 6. Zvezde su oci ratnika 7. Most (Savage bridge) 1969 8. Povratak otpisanih (The Written Off Return) 1976 9. Balkan ekspres (Balkan express) 1984 10. Hajka (Manhunt) 1977 11. Valter brani Sarajevo (Walter Defends Sarajevo) 1972 .......
