Storyline

Sonja, once a popular Serbian actress settled in Slovenia is on a short visit to Belgrade. She panics claiming that her daughter Sofia has been kidnapped, then disappears. Inspector Despotovic is assigned to the case and when he finds Sonja, she admits that she made everything up, that she never had a child, and therefore there was no kidnapping. But a Secret Service veteran approaches Despotovic and tells him that the story about kidnapping is true. It is highly classified information. The father of the child is Foreign Affairs Minister. On the other hand, Minister claims that the Secret Service has made everything up trying to compromise him. Despotovic is puzzled... Who is lying? Who is telling the truth? Who is insane? Who is about to die? Written by NoName

Pretentiousness while in Low-Fi
3 April 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I must say, that after hearing a radio transmission on, what this Serbian director has to say on regional politics, I was intrigued and led to watch this movie. Well, now I regret it - it simply pursed my bubble.

There are few aspects of this movie that are worth of mentioning both in positive and negative light.

What could one see clearly it's made by friends with a certain carelessness, and that is maybe the most positive thing that this film could offer. The shooting of the film lasted 1 month.

On the other hand, film appears insincere in it's tendency toward imitation of a Hollywood political thriller. While hypothetical young director, in process of making his student movie, could allow himself the mistakes that appear constantly on both technical and contextual sides, an acclaimed, praised director, that M.Petrovic is, just cannot.

For a wider, international public, this film offers even less, because it deals with certain local particularities: Sonja, the main character, is actually a famous actress of 80' and 90' (that now resides in Slovenia) that in her past had a conflict with 'cultural police' of Miloshevic period, which led to her non-presence on film scene. Appearing now in this movie as a 40 year old, deranged woman, leaves a bitter taste and unease. The main problem is that the her character doesn't develop, it implodes. And that is just one of many dramaturgy mistakes.

Than the 'secret-police-governing-the-country' public secret, is well known Serbian cliché, that director uses to put in motion a badly sculpted thriller basis. He introduces characters, uses them superficially, and finally abandons them. We are intrigued for a moment, but do we really learn something? Did Mr. Petrovic open our eyes or just used an easy drama exit?
