Storyline

This movie is mainly a love story, and the scenery is the first day of the civil war in ex Yugoslavia (June 1991). The main character is Ratko, an ex con, from some Bosnian "never go there" place. His most important characteristic is that he is colorblind, which gives him, in a symbolic way, the ability to see things differently than 'majority around him' (that is also an explanation of the movie title). On the beginning of the movie, Ratko will meet a city girl, who is a completely different person than him. On their strange voyage they will fall in love with each other and find the way to beat all differences. Written by AnonymousB

Refreshing and Bitter-sweet funny
15 November 2004 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

The director (and writer) of this movie was clearly influenced by a great director Emir Kusutrica when making this great road movie. Again like in so many similar movies (that have a sub-story of collapsing Yugoslavia) the bitter-sweet humor that has been associated with Serbian mentality is what drives this movie forward and makes it a very enjoyable affair. It is obvious that the main actors have made a great effort in preparation and execution of their roles so the Slovenian actress (Aleksandra Balmazovic) is totally believable as a genuine Beograd born lost generation city girl and Srjdan Tododrovic as a naive faith driven Bosnian Serb.

Like Kustorica S. Koljevic uses magic realism to tell this story but unfortunately uses it in some places to cover for normal character development, this goes especially for Aleksandras character who falls in love with Ratko on a very thin basis (Stockholm syndrome? or maybe the python?). Ratko's idealism is much more believable and thus his utter love for Suzana.

Even though there are many similar movies in Serbian cinematography this one is still very refreshing in a sense that it is just a bit more optimistic than usual: there can be true love in terrible situation and also one can break the restraints of his/hers background and even a morbid looking faith (the war that is coming like a thundercloud) if he/she is just enough perseverance.

In any case it is a great movie, a very successful debut for Director and Art Director, with great acting (especially Srdjan Todorovic) and a story that entertains you and at the same time has something more to say... if you listen.
