He agrees... Discovers that he was a war criminal... Realizes who took a shot at him... Finds out who killed his family... Discovers the Fourth Man! Written by
Why are you so interested to know the truth? Let's just say that I'm fed up with all this. Let's just say it's all a lie. And what if it isn't?
Who is the major? What are the colonel true intentions? Is inspector friend or foe? And most important - who is the fourth man? If this introduction to the movie "Četvrti čovek" ("The Fourth Man") doesn't intrigue you, you will definitely be intrigued upon the entry to the cinemas and even more upon the exit. The answer to these questions will catch you unprepared, but maybe you knew the truth the whole time? "Četvrti čovek" is not only a very successfully realized genre movie, in the rank of big Hollywood thrillers, but also has a very strong domestic perspective that reaches back decades ago. That doesn't mean it will not be interesting for international audience. On the contrary, that gives an add value to the movie.
Thumbs up for the whole cast and crew, especially director Dejan Zečević. Great cinematography thanks to Goran Volarević. Nikola Kojo made one of his best roles in this movie. Bogdan Diklić and Dragan Petrović Pele are remarkable. Great female support by Semka Sokolović-Bertok and Dijana Marojević.
