In 1943, group of Croatian soldiers overtake a strategically important point in western Bosnia with a goal to destroy a group of communist partisans. On the way they met some supernatural phenomena, and the action itself went very badly because the partisans ambushed them. The main character Martin inherits silver cigarette case from a dying soldier. This act connects to the story in 1993 when we meet Martins grandson Tomo. He is one of six soldiers of the Croatian army who have come to the same place in Bosnia to meet the same phenomena and similar fate. Written by
I tend to completely agree with ot_lowrider from Serbia, this movie doesn't really make much sense. Yes, it is an anti-war movie, and yes some of the atmosphere is rather realistic, but that is not nearly enough to redeem the grossly lacking script. There is no story, no sense whatsoever in what is happening (I understand that is exactly the point the movie was trying to make, but I find it is not nearly enough).
To make things worse, somewhere half way into the movie, the filmmakers insert some sort of supernatural powers into the happenings which makes this film ridiculous at times. What do ghosts have to do with what was supposed to be a realistic anti-war movie? Give me a break!
