The cinematography is stunning, and it's worth seeing just for that. Like many of the war films coming out of the Balkans, this one can be a bit confusing. It's not a simple, linear narrative, but this serves the film. War and trauma are disorienting, terrible, and occasionally funny in their dark absurdity. The central character is oddly charismatic, and his wanderings are spellbinding. Unlike so many Hollywood films, we have no idea where this guy's going or how it will all end. Nola succeeds in transporting viewers into a strange new world, and films don't get much better than that.
