Storyline

Marko has a poet's sensibilities in Veles, a town in war-torn Macedonia. His sister is a bully, his mom's a doormat, and his dad is a striking factory worker who drinks and plays bingo. At school, Marko is tormented by thuggish fellow students, led by the loutish Levi, the son of a police captain. Marko's teacher of Macedonian, a Bosnian, sees promise in Marko's writing and gives the lad hope that he can someday escape Veles. A chance friendship with a thief who's passing through town furthers Marko's education. Is hope a mirage? What sort of fatherland is Macedonia? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Marko
12 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the most amazing films I have ever seen in my life. I have not been so in tune with a film in a very long time. Every aspect of this film screams 'well-done.' The movie pulsates, after the train scene its just spectacular.

Marko Kovacevic is sensational, he deserved to be recognized for a youth acting award. He is simply amazing on screen and not since young Christian Bale in Empire of the Sun, have we seen such a genuine, in your face work of cinematic genius.

Stunningly done, the cinematography is professional and tangible. The on screen chemistry between all characters is very well directed. kudos to Macedonia.
