The first Lazar's disaster as a screenwriter/director/actor
30 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

As I could see, some of reviews compare this movie with movies of Serbian Fellini, Emir Kusturica! It is like comparison between 'Alone in the house' and 'Gandhi'. Between some totally worthless movie and the movie which pushes you every 2 minutes to think about life, or to say in your mind 'yes,he caught the reality of life, that is Kusturica'.

This movie is totally pointless. When you have a strong script, a master of directing, you don't need to have some fast movie, full of dialogs, you can show a totally plain story, but people won't breathe during their watching of the movie. But this..., you wait to see what Lazar wants to convey to you, and wait, and wait..., and there is no point. No entertainment. No nothing. Great directors can make a festival of the scene when a man must get up and go to job every day..., they can enter in our brains and force to ask ourselves about our lives, are they pointless or not, happy or not...

It seems that Lazar wants to copy this style, to make a vivid movies, about our everyday problems, but..., only masters can be simple. You can't copy it. Emir Kusurica can have this 'life' quality in 10 seconds, you can see yourself in his characters, your childhood, your environment, or some forgotten 'happy' times,..., but again, you just can't fake that. You have it, or not.

Lazar Ristovski doesn't have it, he should continue acting, he does it very good. He should let some other people to be behind the camera.
