A Macedonian filmmaker wants to make the first official Balkan Dogma film in Macedonia. She lies to her friends that she got financial support from the Zentropa producers. The film starts from the moment that she gathers her closest friends and asks them to join her in the quest for finding the right story for the film. She has decided to film the whole process from the very beginning and use it later for the making off. Following the four characters in their quest we discover Macedonia and the Balkans in 2006. The camera captures visual sequences of the absurdity, humor and survival techniques of a land and people in transition. The making off project ultimately becomes the true subject of the film.

great experiment
17 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Doe sit hurt? explores boundaries and approach to film-making and friendship. Fresh,no budget, clever film-making. it sets the guidelines of a scenario in a framework, using the willing friends to build up the storyline. Holds up a mirror to all of them, including the filmmaker (played by an actress). the question asked is how far is one willing to go to get what they want? and once they got it was it worth it? It's a simple, yet layered story, with great actors who are mixed among "ordinary" people (in this case friends of the filmmaker). The friends don't know there is a scenario that has been followed as they are filmed. Meaning they are often placed in scripted situation they do not know about. A must see for anybody who is open to exploration.

Looking forward to see the next project of the author.
