A simple story of an ex-convict who comes home after 10 years, only to find two squatters in the form of a woman and her autistic daughter. Though Lazar initially plans to kick out Jasna and Jovana, he changes his mind after seeing the squalid conditions of the shelter they are to move into. It is an allegory of the Balkan wars. When first released in Serbia, it caused some public outrage because of the sharp criticism of Serbia's role in the war.
Good but depressing movie with excellent role of Lazar Ristovski
Just saw this movie on the Seattle film festival. It is good movie, but at moments painful to watch. Excellent role of Lazar Ristovski, well done script about girl suffering from autism.
Young girl and her mom are refugees and they come to Lazar's house while he's in prison. After 10 years he gets back to his hometown and finds them in his apartment. At first, they leave the place, but he brings them back and starts his new life with them. Their relationship evolves and he falls in love with her. At the same time he accepts young girl as his own kid. Both of them try their best to help her and make her life more joyful.
This part of movie brings hope to a new family, but again life takes new turn. It's definitely worth watching but prepare to be depressed after that.
