Pretty good movie, I was very impressed actually. I wasn't expecting much but I heard it had to do with my family (Kopcic) so I figured might as well see some history. Happy to report, I really enjoyed the movie! There is a great plot along with great acting. You can tell that the movie did the most with a small budget and I really enjoyed the contrasts between the different religions and how all these people interacted. Romance, action, drama, and tragedy tied together in a history. It's not a masterpiece but it is very enjoyable. There were certain parts that made me laugh, if you speak the native language then you'll laugh too. The only negative comments I can give is that the lighting could have used some work and maybe the music. Being that I'm a big Movie Score lover I felt they could have done a better job. Either way a solid 8 our of 10.
