Complexed drama on difficult moral choices...
11 October 2009 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

In this emotionally tormenting drama we slowly discover reasons behind the main character actions but also follow the behavior of all other sides involved in the story (police, prosecutor, media, defense layer, judge, victim's sister) with accent on their own moral doubts, their integrity, courage and fears. In that sense director is trying to present the truth as puzzle where understanding every piece is necessary to comprehend it and because of complexity of problem that story analysis it becomes difficult to maneuver with every aspect at the same level.

Pace of the movie is slow, like director is giving us time to think about moral choice every character makes. And actors are overall great in presenting psychological torments they characters are experiencing. In the end their is no final answer concerning the choice around movie evolves, only that what we decide and try to live with it.
