Storyline

The Kingdom of Serbia, as part of the Balkan League, battling the remaining Turkish occupiers during the First Balkan War in 1912 and outbreak of World War I in 1914 and the crucial Battle of Cer, the first allied victory in World War I. The village is deeply divided between able-bodied men that are potential army recruits and the many disabled veterans from the previous Balkan wars; there is bitter animosity between the two groups, who do not intermingle much with each other even though they live in the same village.

Grandmaster Kovacevic
14 February 2010 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Even though I have never complied with Srdjan Dragojevic's work, I got to say I do respect his movies. This one is not an exception. Pretty good directing on exceptional story made by grandmaster of European Cinema - Dusan Kovacevic. I do not agree with Srdjan's mish-mash concept of traditional Serbian black humor notes served on the movie plate with fast-mood Hollywood style. It is not digestive for Western or Serbian audience neither. Except these, there is an obvious problem with bad acting of some characters in this movie. For example, there is a great contrast between acting of the female and male lead: while Natasa Janjic shows pretty solid acting, Milutin Milosevic cannot act and should change the profession. Still, great directing develops Dostoevsky's analysis of characters and bitter Slavic comprehension of reality. Great role of Laza Ristovski, I am sending him all my compliments. So, only for that reason, we might say that this movie is very worth of watching. And that is not the only reason: Outstanding story on Serbia is told by one of the Serbs with extraordinary view and sane mind . As a Serb, maybe you should see this film to understand why did blind people led us to war, why the people who were able to see shot our own cross that we had sworn to and why is easier for us to deal with death than with life. As everybody else but Serbian, you should see this film to understand why only few million people in this world can call themselves the Serbs.
