"THE TRAP" is a modern film noir reflecting the true face of Serbian (Eastern European) 'society in transition.' It's a story that could happen to you. It is a film about an ordinary man, who is forced to choose between life and death of his own child. THE TRAP is a film about post-Milosevic's Serbia, in which there is no more war, but there is moral and existential desert, about Serbia in transition, in which human life still doesn't worth a lot, about normal life which still seems unreachable.

I gave mark 10/10 to this movie. Maybe the reason is that, lately, since "Sideways" actually, I haven't seen any movie that would touch me at all. And I watch a lot of movies. This one provoked tears many times, it's overwhelming on so easy, non-pretentious way.
Let's back to the subject. The story is very true, complex, convincing. Acting brilliant. Although the movie is a bit slow, it attracts like a magnet, so you can not keep an eye out of it. There are maybe some strange coincidences, but they do not spoil anything. Sunspense and thriller is present all the time.
It raises many questions: "What would I do if I were him", "What is the limit of my love to my child"... Great psychological dilemma, makes you think all the time. It is true European movie, with some American influence, but only on a good way. If you like, at least for a moment, to escape from Hollywood crap, I recommend this movie 100%.
