It's a pity the first review of the film on the IMDb website is so negative, by an illiterate reviewer I might add. I need to respond because this was the single most delightful film I saw at TIFF 2008. I don't understand why it hasn't had wider release. Comedy can be the best way to deal with a tragic history - it's why so often people tell funny stories at memorials. I realize that those personally touched by Serbian history may not find Tears for Sale so amusing, but the ability to find perspective through humour can be a first step in moving on to a better, more tolerant and peaceful future. In general, the quality of new Serbian films is amazing, and this one was only surpassed by the wonderful "Honeymoons" at TIFF 2009. If you can find them, see them both!
