Storyline

During the conflict in the former Yugoslavia many soldiers were convinced to kill fellow citizens including friends and relatives in the name of patriotism. The Kolaborator follows the story of Goran, 24, a promising young soccer player who is forced to become a soldier. Goran goes from being a talented athlete to an executioner virtually overnight. Following orders, Goran lines up civilians, shoots them and drags them into mass graves. Justifying his role as a protector of his people, Goran becomes increasingly detached from the task until his soccer coach and life-long friend, Asim, is led in front of him. As a familiar face stands defeated before him, Goran must reconsider his actions and choose between his own life and that of his dear friend. Written by Anonymous

The movie appears to be nothing more than an excuse to show gratuitous violence and depictions of war. It's about 15 minutes--if that--so the story doesn't thicken much. The main character plays football and then winds up in a war. (No, I'm not skipping things, that's actually how they film it.) Then a person from his past (hint: it's someone that was on the football field obviously. There's nothing else for the viewer to draw from!) comes across the soldier's path and the commanding officer gives the order for the main character to shot him. Does he kill his acquaintance from the past? From the way the short was trying so hard to show the horrors of war (too hard), I lost interest in whether he does or not.

The cinematography was pretty good. Decent shots that were relevant to the script, without being to artsy. However, the script proved to be a colossal waste of my time.
