Belgrade, 1999. Producer Sergei and his film crew are in a disastrous situation - the film they're making is under threat - there's no money, the crew are dissatisfied - and NATO bombing is just around the corner. Then a member of the State Security Service (Mileta) comes looking for American co-producer Harvey. Anxious and worried, in the midst of the bombing that's begun, Sergei hides Harvey from what he thinks is awaiting him - arrest. During the night, he thinks up a plan. He announces the start of filming on a new, patriotic film - in which the main role will be played by Harvey. The plan works - the State supports the film and Mileta, as the State's representative, joins the crew. However, the underlying conflict between Mileta and Sergei explodes during the first screening. Mileta accuses them of being artists, and not being patriots. Sergey begins to realize that he's endangered not only the film but the lives of the whole crew. A tragic death provokes a real revolt amongst ... Written by
This is a very good movie, made during the final months of the Milosevic regime. It is critical to the regime, but also represents the feelings of normal people from Belgrade during the NATO bombings. People who don't know anything about the bombings could read something before watching. During this time the Serbs were (still) represented by the "free" media as ruthless savages. This film deals with these issues as well. The story is very original, the idea belonged to Dragan Bjelogrlic, and the script was written by Nikola Pejakovic. If you have watched "Lepa sela lepo gore" - Bjelogrlic there played Milan, and Pejakovic - Halil. In "Rat uzivo" you can see some of the best Serbian actors. 10 points from Bulgaria :)
