Sarajevo, 1992. They are called Ahmed, Lana, Sado, Saba, Sahbey, Beba, Nemanja, Marx, Matan. They live in and between wartimes. They have "nafaka", the destiny which was bestowed on them by God Almighty. They have enough gallows humor and courage to believe in freedom and happiness. Written by Anonymous

Truly great movie
2 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another masterpiece in Bosnian production, this film will give you a glimpse of reality in an unreal presentation of Bosnian war in its most delicate perspective - the ordinary person, in a besieged city, struggling to survive, find new values and preserve the old ones. These people are the ones we can learn from - how to live, how to fight, and how to forgive. The symbolism in post-war Bosnian production amazes me as I go from one release to another - from "Savrseni krug" to "Nebo iznad krajolika" I have sensed the pain and agony that ordinary Bosnians have went through during the nineties, and just a few hundred kilometers from where I grew up during the war, sad and nostalgic for the times of the 'old country' when our cinematography flourished with talents and a recognized film industry. There is more to come from this region as the source of Balkanian projection of 'tears and laughter' is inexaustable. "Nafaka" is perhaps a new page in illustrating the life in the aftermath of failed hopes and dreams, coping with the new reality, and looking towards the uncertain future with that particular collective spirit of the "Bosnian raja". Great performance by Miralem Zupcevic and Aleksandar Seksan, with legendary Mustafa Nadarevic once again delivering his best in a strong support role (for those who enjoy good Bosnian music, the soundtrack is fantastic, "Red Eye" being the theme made by Sejo Sexon).
