Brilliant move about human nature, life and hopes
20 May 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

One of the best (Bosnian) movies I've seen in last years. Bosnia and Herzegovina is still trying to recover from the terrible war (and present silent war) and people are left by their representatives to try to survive those hard conditions (economic and political) in which the country is.

In short, the story is about a taxi driver trying to make the living and to provide for his family the best he can in the situation given. And the situation is a catalyst or a cause for his actions. He tries to be a nice / good person but as the movie shows, in such surroundings, it's not an easy thing.

Definitely worth watching. The cast is great, characters are played in such a way that the viewer really is able to experience the story.
