A film about the Croatian struggle for human rights and independence.
6 August 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The struggle for human rights of Croatian people is the main focus of this feature length documentary. This Croatian struggle is told through the autobiography of the main character supplemented with original footage and interviews. This film instantly appeals to everyone due to its professionalism and its informative content. On another dimension it also speaks to the heart of Croatian political refugees who had escaped from communist Yugoslavia over past decades. The totalitarian nature of former Yugoslav communist society comes to life on screen through re-enactments. Croatian people in search of their civil rights were labeled as 'anti-state elements' and 'reactionaries' as their struggle under the Tito personality cult is revealed. But not all is depressing as the mood gradually builds towards an exciting climax and the original musical score keeps pace. I highly recommend the film. It accomplishes what it sets out to do! It will help you to better understand why the former Yugoslavia broke up violently.
