Maybe you'll recognize some of Valjarevic in this, so you could say its worth watching... otherwise... life is elsewhere...
Film "Normalni ljudi" is based on the motives of various writings by Srdjan Valjarevic. Srdjan is an excellent writer so unpretentious and humble that it is a crime placing his ideas into this context. I do not wanna go into the reason why did he except to sign this film. Oleg NOvkovic's approach to it is wrong from the very beginning. Surreal is only his attempt to make a noir film. Casting of the film is also terrible and i cannot help it by despise the fact that you have to get crem de la crem of Serbian holy actorship to make a film. NOt with Valjarevic as a base. Will not write any spoilers or point my finger in any part of the film. To name the film "Normalni ljudi" is another miss of this wannabe director. Boring.
