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 saw this film at the 2007 Sarajevo Film Festival. It shows the parallels between the Bosnian war and the partisan struggle of World War Two. Especially poignant scenes are numerous. For example, when the patrol has killed everyone at an outpost they've come across. A member of the patrol remarks that one of the dead they killed went to school with him. At another point, the patrol look across a field and see the campfires of the long-dead World War Two partisans -- or was it fire eating the souls of the dead, as described in the Koran? Double entendre. The final scene has the departed soldiers standing together, the dead partisans from World War Two and the dead member of the patrol in the Bosnian War, standing together in the graveyard. This movie is a masterpiece of design and of photography.
