At last! Great film from Serbia
7 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

Wonderful poetic journey trough the writings of definitely most important Yugoslav writer of the 20th century, Danilo Kish. Its impossible to write the synopsis of "The Sands". Its not narrative film. But, brilliant photography of young Hungarian cinematographer Gergely Pohárnok finally sets the high rate to Serbian film. There aren't leading roles in this film, but somehow Nebojsa Dugalic is leading the plot. And he is good. Have to mention great performance of Lars Rudolph who appears in two scenes and completely "eats the screen". You won't have fun watching this film, and it will strike you after watching it. And it raises a long line of questions. Remember the name of Szabolcs Tolnai!
