Breathtaking movie, Can not say it better, I loved it.
24 June 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Its been a long time since i have seen a movie like this as NAFAKA really goes deep into your thoughts and hopes about living in the war in the nineties, as i could not stop thinking about this movie even after i had watched it 5 times. Amazing cast and great acting and cinematography as you can not tell the difference between what is real and what is not.

Really worth the 10/10, thats what i think this movie deserves and for real. Even the way the characters have been portrayed, you can not but be drawn to them so much as they seem to have that feeling about them. The Characters Ahmed, Redeye, Sado and the commander bring this amazing Bosnian Movie to life.Excellent work.
