Bosnian Pseudo-Amarcord
21 July 2006 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Upon seeing this film, one can be clear about two facts: 1.Bosnian films are up and coming, promising to overrun all the other national film industries in the region, and 2. Not all Bosnian films are that good. Now, like many before, this film captures the true essence of life in Bosnia, with rich characters, shrewd inventions and unorthodox solutions. The script was really well done, promising a film of great comedy and perky one-liners, and yet you will leave with a sour feeling in your mouth after the end, a feeling that something is missing. Yes, the film has all of the most intriguing actors that Bosnia has to offer (Tarik Filipovic, Nada Djurevska, Emir Hadjihafisbegovic), some of them most brilliant in their performances, and yet they could not help the film sinking into the abyss of directors indecisiveness when deciding whether it is a comedy, drama or even a tragedy. It could be that it is all of the three, but then I must say that it just lacks in proper craftsmanship to reconcile all the elements that needed to be looked after. And that, my dear reader, is a clear directorial flaw very common in this region.

Still, I must confess - the film'storyline is intriguing and it deals with modern problems that exist in every young democracy, so I would not go that far to claim that this film should not be seen, on the contrary. Some scenes will make you laugh, some will make you wish you had left the theater 30 minutes ago, but all in all - a nice little tragic comedy that almost strikes the heaven it deserves - but almost is far from perfect. Towards the end, things get complicated a bit more, which is a good sign that the director's drug has finally kicked in, and that he had some aces hidden up his sleeve, which is generally a nice thing, if it occurs.

I have given the film a clear 7/10 and it is only because it is still more interesting than any other Bosnian film that came out in that year.
