Storyline

In the Bosnian town of Tesanj, not long after the Balkan war, land mines claim victims, corruption is rampant, women are trafficked into Serbia, but there's a sort of peace. Zaim, the retired police chief, has alcoholic visions of his dead son Adnan, whose body's missing. Adnan's siblings, Faruk and Azra, watch their father's decline. It's announced that President Clinton will pay Tesanj a visit to see the new harmony. Whores are hidden from sight, Serbs are trucked in to integrate the neighborhood; the children's choir learns "House of the Rising Sun." Meanwhile, Faruk wants to sort out his brother's death to bring some peace to his house. Can it work out? Irony is everywhere. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The best tragi-comedy I've ever seen...maybe the best ever for this genre!
15 March 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I don't normally recommend films here in IMDB, but this one is a 4-star endeavor from a relatively new filmmaker from Bosnia. The USA title is FUSE so keep your eye out for it if it gets distributed here. If you liked the Oscar-winning Bosnian film "No Man's Land" then this film should be right up your alley. In this story, instead of the Serbs and Bosnians fighting they are forced to join together to welcome the arrival of an American President to their area. Excellent cast and very good blend of humor and poignancy. I really can't recommend this film highly enough and I wonder why no USA distributors have glommed onto it (somebody's asleep at the wheel). It will be screened in New York City for the New Director's festival (courtesy of MOMA and LCFS) in the next couple weeks...if you're in the neighborhood this is BEST BET if there ever was one!
