War what is it good for?
18 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The film brings together three Yugoslavs who after the civil war arrive in Paris as a Montenegro Serb, Bosnia and Herzegovina Turk and a Croatian. War has apparently dissolved the unified title of Yugoslavian. However, ironically civil war has created a common bond regardless of religion, that is, their land, home and work have been destroyed. All they have is their labour to sell. The three Yugoslavs find themselves working in a cellar sowing fake labels onto jeans which conceal drugs.

Balkanska Brace's, I feel, focal point is the irony of war and an attempt to remind the viewer of the forgotten bond all Slavs had i.e. that they are Yugoslavs. These three workers begin to realise this as they spend their days imprisoned sowing labels in a cellar with no windows; their shoes and passport taken form theme.

I found the story very poignant and well acted. Whether you have Yugoslavian links or not I think you will find the film funny, sad and ironic.
