A Serbian "Amelie"
30 June 2010 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the TIFF two years ago and I was overwhelmed by the beautiful images, the incredible actresses, the fantastic story and magical illogic of it all. It reminded me very much of the French movie "Amelie", in that it had a similar cause-and-effect structure which obeyed its very own visionary logic. I believe it is utterly unnecessary to try to categorize the movie since its quality precisely lies in its intriguing eclecticism (which makes it hard to sell to people, unfortunately).

The actresses are ravishing, seductive and radiate a sirenic glow - their performance captures the viewer's attention completely from beginning to end.

The story is one of passion and female determinism - told in an entirely unorthodox, refreshing way without ever taking itself too seriously.

Uros Stojanovic is the Serbian Luc Besson and I hope the movie will get the appreciation it deserves.
