Normally I am hesitating to give other interpretations to a movie than ones that are very clear. While watching this movie you should not be hesitant to do so, as:
According to the director (source: introduction to the movie by him at the Rotterdam Film Festival) the autism of the girl who is one of the main characters can be seen as a metaphor for the state in which the Balkan nations are left after the wars in the 1990's.
It took me quite some time to recover from the confusion this movie left me in (alike the confusion left in the Balkan countries after the wars?). Now, after recovery I think it was a very beautifully shocking movie.
